A Dessert-Themed Festival Is Headed To NYC, So Pack Your Bags!

It's time to get your sweet tooth on.

Dessert Goals is coming to New York next month, and all we can say is: Yum.

It’ll be the city’s first-ever festival focused entirely on our favorite food group—dessert. And it’ll take place in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn on October 23, with tickets going on sale Tuesday, September 13. You can sign up here.

Want the 4-1-1?

Dessert Goals will feature 20 of the best dessert vendors from all five New York City boroughs.

“This is going to be a day of indulgence, deliciousness and stretchy pants,” states the fest’s Facebook page.

We’ll say.

What desserts made the cut? I mean, New York City is a big place and takes its food very seriously, so it must have been tough to decide on just 20 vendors.

But don’t worry—there’ll be a wide array of sweets for every sweet tooth around. Here are just a few examples, so get hungry!

Okay, it’s official—we’re not eating dessert until Dessert Goals.

Aside from the desserts, the fest will feature special tastings, fun workshops, a rooftop area with incredible views of Manhattan, and a photo garden (I know!) just for dessert photography, also known as #omgdessertgoals.

Genius, right?

All we can say is: We. Cannot. Wait.

In the meantime, you can join the event on Facebook.
