Holey molars, Batman! Brisbane's 1st dessert festival
Holey molars, Batman! Brisbane is heading for the biggest sugar coma ever when all the best elements of a laneway festival and a dessert bar are deliciously combined for one day only - Saturday 29 October. The Sugar Market will be Brisbane's first ever festival dedicated to all things sweet, gooey, chocolatey, sugary, fudgey... I think you get the drift.
Aiden Street Laneway, just behind The Wickham in Fortitude Valley, is the venue for this festival that will be choc-full of everything delectable and drool-worthy. Some of Brisbane's finest purveyors of sweet treats will be on hand to tempt you from 11am to 5pm, so get your friends together for a day of sampling goods from the most important food groups; chocolate, caramel, candy, cake and ice cream.
