Sweet As - Brisbane Dessert Festival 2021
If it's a sweet treat, it'll be on offer at Brisbane's dedicated dessert festival.
Most food festivals offer a variety of dishes, ranging from snacks and treats to entrees and mains. Sweet As, Brisbane's returning dessert fest, will too — as long as you're fine with meringues, marshmallows and macarons as appetisers, cakes and doughnuts for a hearty meal, and ice cream, sorbet, gelato and dessert cocktails to wrap it all up.
That's just our suggested order. With all of the above usually on offer — plus everything from brownies and waffles to cheese and chocolate — there's no right or wrong way to work your way through the menu. All of the treats will be served up by a range of the city's best dessert-makers, with The World Food Markets overseeing the event. And while Brisbane is no stranger to sweet-filled festivals, it really is a situation where the more, the merrier applies.
With the festival running from 10am–5pm on Sunday, September 21 at Musgrave Park, that means dessert is on the menu for a late brunch, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea — and if you opt for to stick around for a few of those meals, there'll be no judgement. For those with dietary requirements, there'll be lactose-free, gluten-free, nut-free and vegan options across the board as well. Yep, that truly is sweet as.
Also on offer: non-sugary street food, pop-up bars, cooking demonstrations and live entertainment.
