C&G's Guide to Melbourne Donut Festival

Who doesn’t love donuts?! The team at the Queen Victoria Markets love donuts so much that they’ve created an entire festival dedicated to them. Dessert makers (or pattisers if you want to sound fancy!) from all over Melbourne are coming together at the iconic inner-city market on Sunday the 4th of July to show off their sweetest work.

From classic hot jam and churros, to vegan and gluten free delights, there’s certain to be something tasty for everyone. Plus, there will be live entertainment, delicious savoury food, and even a donut eating competition with a year’s supply of donuts and QVM vouchers to be won!
