Gelato Festival is considered the most prestigious individual gelato tournament in the world and the leading event for promoting the sector. It consists of a 4-year qualification stage with selections and national/continental finals that allow chefs from all over the world to qualify for the final stage of the tournament, the world final called "Gelato Festival World Masters". The next world final will take place in 2021. Having crossed the 10th anniversary milestone, with an annual average of 15 festivals open to the public and 50 selections behind closed doors around the world, Gelato Festival can now be considered one of the most important and most followed food events globally.
