Sweetery: A Food Festival Supporting Sick Kids, Will Sweeten Your Weekend

As the weather warms in Toronto, the street festivals begin. Most food festivals are culture based, Sweetery will instead focus on all things sugary with recipes that’ll entice your sweet tooth. The best part is that you’ll have an excuse to indulge in the taste test, scavenger hunt and piñata breaking activities – 100% of the proceeds will go to support the Sick Kids Foundation!

Key Details

Date: Weekend of August 15 and 16
Time: noon to 10pm
Location: Front Street West and Portland Street
Admission: Free

With the plethora of vendors in attendance, bringing friends and family is a must to be able to try as many sweets as possible. The Hungarian chimney from Original Chimneys, butter tart from Beverley’s Bakers, sakura mocha milk from Kakigori and Vietnamese coffee cheesecake from Catering Diva has my name all over them!

George Brown Pastry chefs will be at the festival making pastries so you can see what it takes to concoct these decadent treats. Famous home cook, Christopher Siu of Master Chef Canada, will be offering Chinese inspired macarons and matcha crepe cakes.

There will also be the Canadian favourite sweet treat Beavertails, vegan cupcakes from Bloomer’s, bespoke marshmallows from I Love Puffy Love, Filipino desserts from Tito Rons and Mexican pastries from Pancho’s. But, if you want to have a meal before dessert, Fufu Rocks will be serving up savoury meals.

Check out Sweetery and take a whack at the piñata to help reach their $10,000 goal to support Sick Kids. Sweet treats will be available from $3-$5 and all attendees will receive a complimentary loot bag that gives you a chance to find a “golden ticket” to win a prize. So I encourage you to channel your inner Charlie and visit the chocolate factory this weekend.
