Event: -
Not one will be judging you so eat what you want
Hear ye, hear ye - all you sweet tooths - here is a function designed just for you.



Cleveland's very own festival is run purely for all things sweet (with savoury options). This will be launched at the Redland Showgrounds on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May 2019.



Children under 15 years of age will be able to get in free and tickets for this event start at just $10 plus booking fees. These will be available until 10th May 2019, so make sure you book yours before then.

The event will be presented by The World Food Markets and the Sweet As Dessert Festival brings you two full days of delicious sweets and treats. There will be things like:

Brownies
Cheese
Chocolate
Coffee
Cupcakes
Doughnuts
Gelatos
Ice-creams
Macarons
Marshmallows
Meringues
Popsicles
Sorbets
Waffles
And lots more from an awesome line-up of Queensland's best dessert makers

There will be options for most special dietary requirements including lactose-free, gluten free, nut free and even some vegan desserts.

This is a judge-free zone, so you can have dessert for breakfast, brunch or lunch! No one will bat an eyelid at your eating habits for this day!



There will also be street food, live music, pop-up bars, dessert cocktails, children's activities and entertainment as well as cooking demonstrations throughout the day.

You could enter some food eating contests and details of some of these are yet to be announced. One that has been announced already is the children's ice cream eating contest. The Kids Ice-cream Eating Contest will be on Saturday 11th May.

You can register your child for the ice-cream eating contest at the Info booth latest by half an hour before each round (all contestants must be accompanied by a responsible adult who will need to sign an authorisation form allowing their children to compete).

Please check out this Facebook page to learn more about this exciting event.

The contestants must eat the ice cream directly from the plate without using their hands to touch the plate or the ice cream. The use of utensils is not allowed - should be great fun.



There will be a Redlands best strawberry dessert competition, a storytelling contest to crown Redlands Sweet As Mum with the funniest yarns about everyone's favourite person in the whole wide world as well as the Mother's day markets.

Tickets are on sale now and you can get yours at this link.

Second release tickets for over 15 years are now $10 per person plus a booking fee. If you buy your tickets at the gate they will be $15 per person.
