If you go nuts for doughnuts, there's only one place to pop on your itinerary for Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4: Queen Victoria Market is throwing a weekend-long celebration dedicated to the world's favourite holey treat.

Returning for a huge 2023 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 morsels and sugar-coated churros.

There'll be plenty of vegan and gluten-free goodies among the lineup, which comes courtesy of traders like Daniel's Donuts (glazed creations in flavours like Golden Gaytime), St Gerry's (syrupy Greek loukoumades) and Shortstop (think, brown butter and maple walnut, or honey with sea salt).

Of course, QVM's iconic American Doughnut Kitchen will also be on hand, slinging its famed sugar-coated, jammy creations, along with house-made jam by the jar. And if you're as adventurous as the chefs at Pasta Face, you can even try their savoury takes on the concept, including doughnut variations like mac 'n cheese and spaghetti.

Of course, you get to enjoy all of that while feasting your ears on the day's live tunes and roving performances.
