The Gelato Festival World Masters is the most authoritative individual gelato tournament in the world, organised together with partners Carpigiani and Sigep - Italian Exhibition Group. It is a journey with hundreds of competitions over four years on five continents, with technical and popular juries selecting the 36 finalists from all over the world who will compete in 2021 to win the title of world champion. Therefore, not only the industry's leading international competition in search of the best gelato in the world, but a project to strategically position artisanal gelato and the entire supply chain, with the aim of involving 5,000 gelato artisans from around the world in the challenge and generating a 15% increase in the trade.
Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May, the Gelato Festival 2020 comes back in Barcelona: the Catalan capital - cultural fiefdom of Antoni Gaudì - will host the festival with 16 of the best gelato chefs
Gelato Festival 2020, Florence and Rome stages have been postponed. The first two stages of the event scheduled between April and May will be postponed to September, to keep our chefs and guests safe. The rest of this year’s calendar of events stays the same at the moment, and we'll confirm the September dates as soon as possible.
