Ice cream socials are a traditional gathering dating back to the 18th century in North America. The first ice cream social in America was in 1744, when Maryland governor Thomas Bladen served ice cream for a dinner party. When ice cream became more common to the public in the 1800s, organizations such as schools and churches started hosting ice cream socials. Today, it is often a neighborhood event or welcoming party, normally held during the summer.
