The Gelato Festival World Masters is considered the most prestigious gelato event in the world. Held only once every four years, it’s the final world championship following a rigorous qualification process with local, national and continental qualifying rounds–only the most skilled, passionate and imaginative gelato masters pass through.

The next world final will take place in December 2021 and marks our twelfth anniversary. With an annual average of 15 public festivals and 50 closed-door selections globally, Gelato Festival is now one of the most important and most-followed food events in the world.
