Help us celebrate Bartlett's 125th birthday with a family-fun
Ice Cream Social!

Some people have asked us, "What is an ice cream social?"

As defined on Wikipedia:

"An ice cream social, also known as an ice cream party, is a planned event, the primary focus of which is ice cream served to the guests. It is often a neighborhood event or welcoming party, normally held during the summer."

Since Bartlett is celebrating it's 125-year anniversary this year, we thought it would be appropriate to hold a social event* to bring the community together, and provide a fun social setting where everyone can relax and spend time together.

Hosted on the grounds of Banbury Fair there will be plenty of shaded seating, and plenty of room for the fun family activities we have planned.

We'll have games, contests, music, and more so it'll be another fun time!

*All activities will be FREE OF CHARGE, but normal charges will apply to ice cream.

Check our Events page for more details!

Our mission

To help create the greatest place on earth. Not here in this little shop, but at your home. For the kids to be having the greatest time of their lives eating delicious candy, ice cream, popcorn, sno-cones and more, and running themselves ragged in one of our inflatables. For you and your friends and family to be sitting under the shade of a tent on a beautiful day, with the ability to have great conversation, uninterrupted, and to just relax for a few hours knowing the kids are well-occupied and safe. As we grow, we’ll continue to add more of the things that will help enhance this experience. Our mission is to provide an environment where you and your loved ones are having fun, laughing, reconnecting with each other, relaxing, and pausing for a moment to look around and say, “Right now, this is the greatest place on earth.”


At Bartlett's Candy House we strive to be a valuable presence in our community. Owner Nicole Ohlson grew up here in Bartlett, and her desire to give back to her hometown is strong. That's why we'll be hosting many events at the Candy House which will serve to celebrate and educate the community, or just be flat-out fun! Visit our Events page for a full schedule.
