You’re invited to join us for our Ice Cream Social on Sunday afternoon, August 15, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Now that we are open for visitors, we are bringing back the programs that make the Ephrata Cloister a special place. Please mark your calendar and plan to stop by for ice cream and brownie sundaes with all the toppings. We’ll have live music, a visit from KPETS therapy dogs, and special sales in the Museum Store. Cost is $10 per person and $5 for members. 

Thank you, Blue Ridge, for partnering with the Ephrata Cloister Associates to bring the Ice Cream Social to the community. Your long-standing support as a valued Community Partner is helping us achieve our mission – to preserve the unique heritage of the Cloister and the town of Ephrata. We appreciate your generosity!
