The Ice Screamers is a collectors club founded in 1982. Our
members specialize in collecting ice cream parlor and soda fountain memorabilia.
The variety of items we collect is amazing: from scoops to freezers, glassware
to moulds, ice cream cartons to penny licks, and much more. Any item with an ice
cream or soda fountain - related theme is a potential collectible!
The first Ice Screamer newsletter in 1982 was mailed to 50 charter members. Since then, The
Ice Screamers organization has grown to 450+ families in the United States and several countries around the world. Many of our
members are recognized experts in ice cream collectibles, and a growing number
own or operate vintage ice cream parlors and soda fountains with the best ice
cream you'll ever taste!
We publish a quarterly newsletter filled with interesting
articles about soda fountains and ice cream parlor collectibles. Members discover new information about their collectibles in every issue,
and find people who share common interests. We also sponsor an
annual convention held in late June in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Expenses associated with sponsoring these undertakings are paid through member dues and
merchandise sales. Our all-volunteer board is dedicated to promoting interest,
education and research of ice cream, ice cream parlors, and soda fountain
