Dessert Goals: Tickets on sale for festival's sweet return

By Nicole Levy January 31, 2018

Get ready to double-fist doughnuts and cake pops for almost two hours straight.

A limited number of early-bird tickets for the massively popular Dessert Goals festival, returning to New York City for a spring edition in March, go on sale at noon Wednesday, Jan. 31, for $12 on thefestival's website.

Launched as a two-day event by friends Liang Shi and Miraya Berke in 2016, this year will be the first time the bi-coastal sweets fest will span two weekends. This is the also first edition to feature a theme — "spring disco" — and attendees are encouraged to dress appropriately

Tickets typically sell out in less than an hour, so you'll definitely want to buy yours during your lunch break. If you miss this round, you'll get a second chance to buy a general admission ticket ($17) on Feb. 13. (Just keep in mind that a ticket grants access, but you'll need to bring extra cash for the goods inside.)

The event roster curated by Shi and Berke features a few top sellers from previous editions — Mojo Mousse by Johan, Sugar Monster Sweets, Mochi Doki, Brooklyn Floss (cotton candy) and Rebecca's Cake Pops — as well as newcomers Tiny Kitchen Treats (cookies), Pop Cake Shop and Supermoon Bakery, a new Lower East Side shop that will feature croissant-muffin hybrids (a.k.a cruffins), croissants and doughnuts in flavors exclusive to the festival.

Dessert Goals is moving operations from Brooklyn to Queens, setting up at Sound River Studios in Long Island City. The new space has twice the capacity of the old one at Dobbin Street, according to a news release. Expect plenty of photo-worthy installations like last summer's rainbow cotton candy wall and unicorn swim ring.

The spring festival will take place on March 17, 18, 24 and 25. That offers two months to practice your Instagram photo skills (and possibly invest in a portable LED camera light).

A general admission ticket grants you one and a half hours access to the sweets available for purchase.

The $35 "extra sugar rush" ticket gets you an extra half hour and sends you home with a swag-filled tote bag.

Dessert Goals

New York City’s happiest food festival Dessert Goals is upping the sweet factor for its first 2018 edition — and you might even score a ticket this time.

The Spring 2018 edition of Dessert Goals, the Instagram-friendliest showcase for the city’s prettiest cakes, crepes, ice creams and cookies, will stretch to two weekends for the first time: March 17-18 and 24-25.

They’re also moving from Brooklyn to Sound River Studios in Long Island City, which has twice the space for all the new dessert-focused restaurants and businesses cropping up to satisfy the demand for Instagram fodder.

New vendors include Supermoon Bakehouse with its out-of-this-world pastries, adorable frosted cookies from Tiny Kitchen Treats and push-pop cakes by P.O.P. Cake Shop. Also bringing her cake game is New York Cake Show winner Ashley Holt’s Sugar Monster Sweets.

They're also adding a theme for the first time: Spring Disco, so come dressed in Hawaiian florals, Saturday Night Fever dancefloor duds and patterned bellbottoms.

Despite always selling out its tickets within an hour, Dessert Goals has actually lowered the price of entry (treats are pay-as-you-go) from $20 to $12 for early birds (on sale Jan. 31 at 9 a.m.) and $17 for general admission (on sale Feb. 13).

Both get you 90 minutes to browse, snap and taste all the treats that catch your eye. That’s right, all of them — Dessert Goals only sells a limited number of tickets so the event is never crowded, vendors don’t run out, and attendees can enjoy themselves in the Instagram Garden and photography panels instead of spending the day standing in line. 

If you want to be sure to get in a few additional bites, an Extra Sugar Rush tier has been added, which gets you two hours at the event and a goodie bag ($35).

Brooklyn Artist and Fleas- Snack to the Future

Brooklyn Artist and Fleas- Snack to the Future

Come check us out at the Williamsburg location of Artist and Fleas where we will have our cookie boxes and sprinkles and little cookie bites for you to try, because tasting is believing. 

During this event market shoppers will follow a "snack trail" through the market and sample a wide selection of nibbles and bites along the way before voting for their favorites.

So shop, nibble and repeat. Sounds like a perfect weekend activity to me. 

A little about BK Artist and Fleas: First established in 2003 in a former warehouse as a weekend market to bring together the creative and the curious, Artists & Fleas has become a vital destination for the community of artists, designers, vintage collectors and makers eager to set up shop and connect with their audience locally and beyond. Home to more than 100 individual sellers every weekend, Artists & Fleas has cultivated an international reputation amongst buyers, trend-spotters and creative entrepreneurs as a place to showcase and discover what's new and exciting in fashion, vintage, art, design and more.
