New Yorkers are spoiled when it comes to food festivals—we've got fests dedicated to everything from dumplings to hot sauce, jerk chicken to oysters. And now, finally, NYC has a festival devoted to all things dessert—now we're talking. 

On Sunday, October 23rd from noon to 6pm, Dessert Goals fest will be taking over Williamsburg's Dobbin Street with treats from 20 vendors: Expect bubble tea from Boba Guys, ice cream sandwiches from Melt Bakery, Hong Kong egg waffles from Wowfulls and artisanal Twinkies from Jae NYC Eats available for purchase. 

Beyond the bites, the festival will feature a rooftop lounge, workshops on dessert photo styling and a photo garden built specifically to Instagram needs, as well as a coffee "experience" with unlimited Intelligentsia brews. Early bird tickets go on sale today at noon for only ten bucksdon't forget to bring your stretchy pants.
