Donut Festival at Queen Victoria Market
Time Out says
Bring your sweet tooth to this celebration of all things ring-shaped, deep-fried and sugary
There are many iterations of the doughnut. There's the ones filled with piping hot jam, served as a bowl, dusted in cinnamon and loaded with ice-cream, or glazed with a thick sugary crust. It won't matter how you like your doughnuts though as the Donut Festival arrives at Queen Victoria Market this July.
Roll on in on Sunday, July 4 and sample sweet treats by American Doughnut Kitchen, Bistro Morgan, St Gerry’s, Short Stop Melbourne, Churro Kitchen, Pasta Face, Mimmo’s and G.Free Donuts. There will also be coffee, classic 1950s-style milkshakes or warm hot chocolates for those seeking abnormally high insulin levels.
Some of you may have noticed that the Donut Festival was in fact postponed due to Victoria's fourth lockdown, and a casualty of this has been the doughnut-eating competition that was originally slated to take place. However, you can still win a year's supply of hot jam doughnuts from the American Doughnut Kitchen (plus $100 worth of QVM vouchers) simply by heading over to the QVM website and filling out a form.
The Donut Festival is free to enter and will take place on Sunday, July 4 from 9am to 4pm at Queen Victoria Market.
