Dessert Goals is a massive festival dedicated to all things sweet and brings together the very best of NYC for a weekend filled with treats.
This year the event is taking place in a large venue in Long Island City called Sound River Studios. Along with all the decadent sweets on offer, the sixth annual Dessert Goals fest will have a picturesque Instagram Garden that’ll be the perfect backdrop for all your confectionery photos. The space will also feature sweeping panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, so there will be no shortage of photo opps.
There will be about 22 vendors featured over the two days (March 23 & 24) , including:
Stax Ice Cream
Oddfellows Ice Cream Co.
Baked in Color
Rebecca’s Cake Pops
Matcha n’ More
Tea and Milk
And that’s not even close to all of them! If you’re just in the mood for some candy, be sure to check out the Candy Bar which will be filled with free candies from Red Vines and Sour Patch. In between all the sugary goodness you’ll be able to cleanse your palette at the Salt Bar. (Because nothing makes you crave something salty like sweets, and vice versa!) And for the first time ever, you’ll be able to attend their Dessert Goals At Night event! The night party will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, March 22, and will allow guests to preview the venue, experience exclusive dessert offerings, and enjoy specialty cocktails by Baileys.
Your ticket to event will include access to all of these amenities for an hour and a half, as well as coffee, water, a lounge area, free candy, and some other sweet surprises that Dessert Goals has up their sleeve. Oh, and did we mention that the theme this year will be Party Animal? Think colorful party vibes with animal flair! Dressing up for the theme is highly encouraged.
