Doughnut Festival 2022
A two-day homage to the world's favourite holey treat, from the classic to the totally left-field.
May 12, 2022
If you go nuts for doughnuts, there's only one place to pop on your itinerary for Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5: Queen Victoria Market is throwing a weekend-long celebration dedicated to the world's favourite holey treat.
Returning for a huge 2022 edition, the Doughnut Festival is set to showcase a multicultural array of doughnuts and other closely-related sweet treats; from old-school US-style dough balls oozing hot jam, to choc-centred bites and sugar-coated churros. There'll be plenty of vegan and gluten-free goodies among the lineup, which stars names like Bistro Morgan, St Gerry's (syrupy Greek loukoumades) and Shortstop (think, cookies and cream or spiced apple cider).
Of course, QVM's iconic American Doughnut Kitchen will also be on hand, slinging its famed sugar-coated, jam-filled creations. And if you're as adventurous as the chefs at Pasta Face, you can even try their savoury take on the concept — a special-release spaghetti doughnut.
A matching drinks offering will feature the market's usual coffee and hot choccy lineup, alongside nostalgic 50s-style shakes and spiced apple cider. All to enjoy while feasting your ears on the day's live tunes and roving performances.
