Charlottesville Ice Cream Shop!
Want to have your Ben & Jerry's ice cream the way it was originally intended? Head into our locally owned and operated Charlottesville ice cream shop and dig into any of our euphoric ice cream flavors in the way the first scoops were served up by Ben and Jerry themselves. We make delicious custom ice cream cakes. We even offer catering and will deliver our ice cream right to your next party or event!
Office party coming up? Lobby event in your office building? Birthday party? Even a wedding? Aren’t you bored with the same old same old taco bar or tired sheet cake? Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Catering specializes in serving your favorite flavors in cups, cones and sundaes to turn your next gathering into an ice cream extravaganza. We show up and do it all—all you do is eat ice cream and party on.
We have an ice cream cake for every occasion! Our fans love them for office parties, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, graduation parties, and birthdays! Choose a ready-to-go ice cream cake for the spur of the moment party or create a custom cake that can be as unique in flavor and design as your occasion.
Scoops for Scholars
Reading is fun, but reading to get free scoops is a scream! We'd love to talk with you about how we can bring this program to your school to motivate young learners to achieve. We support all forms of positive reinforcement for learning accomplishment and are happy to discuss any other programs you have in mind.

We take community activism very seriously at your Charlottesville Ben & Jerry’s! Since 2009, we have donated over 5,000 scoops of ice cream directly to community non-profit organizations to support fundraising efforts. We would love to meet with you to talk about how we can help your Charlottesville, Virginia area based organization as well! Download our Donation Request Form below (we only accept requests from Charlottesville area based organizations), and let us know how we can get involved to help your local community organization. Our biggest community celebration each year is Free Cone Day, and we LOVE to give out free scoops in Charlottesville. Since we opened in 1999, we have given away almost 100,000 Free Cone Day scoops! Taking advantage of this terrific community based event, we have also raised over $30,000 for the Virginia Institute of Autism (www.viaschool.org). We have partnered with other Charlottesville businesses to make Free Cone Day a mobile event, and we would love to partner with your workplace as well. In 2008, we got out and served over 4,000 Free Cone Day scoops to city employees - including stops at all 9 city schools and the local police, fire and rescue stations!
The staff at Ben & Jerry’s Charlottesville has helped make our community stronger in other ways as well. We have participated in Habitat for Humanity (www.cvillehabitat.org) builds, collected for Toy Lift (www.kidslift.org), and donated over 500 pounds of canned goods to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank (www.brafb.org). We have also sponsored numerous Vermonster eating contests with our community partners!
