It's about time.

New York City will be hosting its first dessert festival this fall.

Dessert Goals will feature 20 of the top dessert vendors across each of New York City’s five boroughs in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on October 23.

Treats include cakes inspired by Twinkies from Jae NYC Eats, mochi ice cream from Mochidoki, authentic Hong Kong-style egg waffles topped with ice cream from Wowfulls, ice cream sandwiches from Melt Bakery, and jewelry-inspired truffles and cakes from Mini Melanie.

There will also be a photo garden where guests will find candy-inspired backgrounds and props, a candy wall, sweet-themed demonstrations, and unlimited Intelligentsia Coffee—in case you need to add some caffeine to your sugar rush.

Miraya Berke, the founder of events studio Pop Productions, and Liang Shi, who owns the New York pop-up Ma Matcha and who started a curated dinner series, are creating the sugar-filled celebration.

Early bird tickets starting at $10, and general admission tickets go on sale September 27 for $15. There are separate tickets available for tastings and workshops.
