36th Annual Ice Cream Social

The Silver City Museum hosts the 36th Ice Cream Social this Independence Day! For decades the Ice Cream Social has been a highlight of the local Independence Day celebration. A full slate of live entertainment, seasonal treats, and old-fashioned pastimes will be featured, along with vendors and non-profit partners. Admission and children's activities are free as always.

Tickets are available at the gates for treats, refreshments and Cakewalk. The program will be MCed by the incomparable Raul Turrieta, hosting this year as the ring leader for our old-time carnival (don't worry, "Uncle Sam" will still make an appearance).

Musical guests will entertain guests on the shady lawn of our courtyard, including mariachi singer Angelica Padilla, beloved fiddling duo Bayou Seco, a surprise act TBA, and of course the Concert Band of the Southwest will take us out for the grand finale!
