Q: What ice cream partners will be at the 36th annual Scooper Bowl?
A: Check out our Flavors page for flavors and ice cream partners!

Q: I am not planning to eat ice cream—can I enter for free?
A: No. Even though you may not be planning to eat ice cream, you will still enjoy a lot of great entertainment and fun activities. There is still a cost to enter. And remember—your admission fee supports cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!

Q: Can I bring my pet in with me?
A: We apologize, but pets are not allowed on City Hall Plaza at the event.

Q: Can I bring my lunch in with me?
A: This is an ice cream only event! We apologize but due to health codes, we do not allow outside food to be brought into the event.

Q: What happens if it rains?
A: The Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl® will take place rain or shine! We will only shut down early in the rare case of extreme or dangerous weather, in which case all updates will be posted on the homepage of www.scooperbowl.org and Jimmy Fund Facebook and Twitter.

Q: If I purchase a Speedy Pass, do I need an event ticket too?
A: No – your Speedy Pass serves as both your ticket and your pass to skip the lines. The Speedy Pass is valid for one person only; if you plan to attend with others and all want to skip the lines, each person should purchase a Speedy Pass as their ticket.
