Full Tilt Ice CreamNorthwest Folklife is proud to partner with Full Tilt Ice Cream this October and November to bring you a cool treat that’s sure to bring back the summer sun. Start brainstorming now because the details of this ice cream are up to you!

Send us your idea for Folklife’s 40th anniversary ice cream flavor and name by Friday, September 3, 2010.  Then, during the week of September 6th we will post the most popular suggestions on our blog for people to vote and pick a winner.

The winning folk-inspired ice cream flavor and name will be featured in all Full Tilt Ice Cream locations starting Saturday, October 9th at our Flavor Release Party. We’ll kick-off the event at the White Center Full Tilt location from 12- 2pm.

The Folklife ice cream will also be featured at an A Night for Folklife event at the Columbia City Full Tilt from 9-11 pm on Saturday, November 6, 2010. During this A Night for Folklife party people can come to celebrate Folklife, listen to live music and enjoy their tasty ice-cream! The Folklife flavored ice cream will stay in stores until November 16, 2010.
