Sweet Treats Dessert Festival Preview: Ice Cream, Candies, Cookies, Coffee and more!
The Sweet Treats Dessert Festival is back! In a little over two weeks, guests will join one another at The Exchange at Bridge Park to embark on a journey of the senses! Our sweet makers are busy preparing what they deem their BEST Sweet Treats!
Our first session (12pm – 2pm) is now SOLD OUT! There are still a limited number of Early Bird Tickets (11am – 2pm) and second session tickets (2pm – 4pm) available. Don’t wait to grab your tickets, your sweet tooth will never forgive you!
Johnson’s Real Ice Cream will be offering guests a triple threat! Triple Trouble Vanilla is a triple dose of pure Madagascar Vanilla extract with Vanilla Bean Seeds. If someone tells you Vanilla is boring, they definitely haven’t tried Johnson’s. It was voted #1 at the 2019 World Dairy Expo!!
Kilwins has their famous fudge up for sampling! Since Kilwins is most known for their chocolate, it is no surprise they are sampling a few of their delectable treats. In addition to their famous fudge, guests can taste; chocolate covered pretzels, non pariels, AND chocolate covered cherries.
Mrs. Turbo’s Cookies will be featuring their amazing Chocolate Chip Cookie and a few other treats! Mrs. Turbo’s is a scratch kitchen and uses only the best ingredients to make all of their amazing treats. “We are bringing back the basics of mom’s cooking: clean, simple, all natural.”
Roosevelt Coffeehouse will be brewing their Winter Blend. This blend features flavors of fudge, plum, and caramel. This blend will be the perfect complement to all of those sweet and delicious samples! Not only does Roosevelt have great drinks, they support the efforts of those working to fight the local and global injustices of unclean water, hunger, and human trafficking. Roosevelt partners with organizations that they know are building wells and latrines, feeding people locally and internationally, and rescuing & restoring dignity to those who have been enslaved.
Not only will we have sweet treats this year, we will also have sweet words! Amy Turn Sharp will be inspiring us all by typing poems of love for ticket holders during our event! Things you’ve thought of saying, but weren’t sure if you should…Amy will say it! Ask her to type her deepest desires and she won’t hesitate. The perfect Valentine poem is already at her fingertips!
With our first session (12pm-2pm) already sold out, you shouldn’t wait to grab your ticket. All tickets offer guests access to the full event and a treat sample from each local sweets maker. Our Sweet Treats Dessert Festival has three ticket options; Early Bird Tickets are $25 and give guests exclusive access to the event from 11 a.m. – noon (on top of the 12 p.m – 2 p.m. session) our SOLD OUT session.
