You've drooled over their sweets on social media. You may have even treated yourself to a few of their sugary creations. But when it comes to indulging your sweet tooth with desserts from the likes of Anna Polyviou, Andy Bowdy with Pie Country, Knafeh Bakery, Cow and the Moon, Butter, Thievery, Textbook Patisserie, LuxBite, The Scran Line and Zeus Street Greek all under one roof, that's an opportunity you rarely come across. Enter Sweet Street.

In its fourth year, Sweet Street is a dessert festival hosted by celebrity chef Anna Polyviou and designed to give you a serious sugar high thanks to some of Australia's leading pastry chefs. An entire ballroom of the Shangri-La Sydney will be converted into a sugary wonderland that'll give even Willy Wonka a run for his chocolate coins. Plus, if you find haven't fully hit peak sugar level, there'll be a cake-eating contest too.

In the spirit of 'street', graffiti artists, skaters, break dancers, DJs and rappers will also be about, adding some entertainment to pick you up when your sugar high starts to crash.

Tickets are $85 and include eight tokens to start you on your adventure down Sweet Street. For one night only, you'll get to enter the Candy Land of your childhood dreams, and there'll be no one but yourself to decide when you've had too much sugar (never).
