Ohio’s Velvet Ice Cream Turns 100 This Year

Velvet Ice Cream 100 Years

Ohio ice cream manufacturer Velvet Ice Cream will celebrate its 100th birthday on May 1. Velvet started hand crafting ice cream in Utica, Ohio, in 1914. It will mark the milestone birthday with a series of announcements, specials, events and activities, beginning with the May 1 opening of Velvet’s Ye Olde Mill to the public for the summer visitor season. Now run by the fourth generation of the Dager family, Velvet has been a family owned and operated company ever since it was started by Joseph Dager.

The summer-long celebration of Velvet’s 100th anniversary will include the launch of several new all-natural flavors. In addition, a Velvet Ice Cream cookbook, featuring recipes, history, fascinating facts and more will launch this spring. Each Sunday, visitors to Velvet’s Ye Olde Mill in Utica, Ohio, will enjoy free entertainment, including live music and clowns. Mother’s Day will feature live entertainment and free carriage rides with Mom. Velvet also will commemorate its 100th birthday with a celebration on Sunday, May 26, during the annual Utica Ice Cream Festival (May 24-26) and, on July 20, visitors can celebrate the company’s favorite holiday, National Ice Cream Day, with buy one-get-one-free ice cream cones at Ye Olde Mill.
