Rockwood Park will host a scaled-down ice cream festival 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 26.

Confirmed ice cream vendors include Cinnamon Bun Exchange, Dino’s Ice Cream Truck, the Ice Cream Shoppe, Kilby Cream, Kona Ice, Paleteria y Neveria Tocumbo, UDairy Creamery and Woodside Farm Creamery.

Live local music will begin at 10 a.m. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch. There will also be vintage vendors from First State Flea at the park, 4651 Washington St.

No other onsite activities will be available, so New Castle County has dropped the admission fee.

The county plans to update information, including the musical lineup, on its festival page.

The Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Festival at Rockwood Park with full activities will return in 2022,” the  county promised in announcing this summer’s smaller festival.
