A dessert-themed festival is returning to Queens to give their guests a sugar rush that they’ll never forget.

The 10th edition of the Dessert Goals Festival is returning to Sound River Studios, located at 4-40 44th Drive in Long Island City, on May 2-3. This sweet festival will offer sweet social media-worthy treats from over 20 local vendors, including Rebecca’s Cake Pops, Baked in Color, Tipsy Scoop, Keki Modern Cakes, Macaron Parlour, Spoonable Spirits, Brooklyn Floss and Baonanas.

This festival is boasting a Pattern Party-theme, complete with an Instagram Garden and tons of polka dots, stripes and bold prints. Since launching in 2016, the Dessert Goals Festival has expanded from New York City and has held events in Los Angeles.

“I’ve been so blown away by the passion of the incredible Dessert Goals community of vendors, partners and attendees over the past few years – I can’t wait to celebrate what we’ve built together at our 10th festival,” said Dessert Goals founder Miraya Berke. “Over 3,000 guests will taste their way through a collection of our most indulgent dessert hits, dress up in their favorite bright patterns, strike a pose, snap photos and have the *best day ever* with their fellow dessert-loving pals.”
