Donut Fest NYC 2016

Donut Fest 2016 The Doughnut Project
Winter may be in full swing but this may be one New Year's Resolution you're going to have to break.  The Inaugural Donut Fest 2016 arrives in NYC on Sat, Jan. 23rd, barely two weeks from now at Verboten!

Donut Fest 2015 Chicago
Donut Fest Chicago 2015 drew over 900 attendees
Bobalky & Gnocchi, having found success hosting Donut Fest and Poutine Fest in Chicago, knew it was finally time to take it on tour.  They have been an annual affair in Chicago for years, after all.  If L.A. can have one, New York ought to have one too!

It'll not only be a celebration but competition too, as the top purveyors go donut-to-donut for the title of "Best Donut." There will be judges on-hand but attendees will have their say too.

The tasting will be spaced across multiple sessions, similarly to tastings of this size.
Session 1: 11:30 AM- 2:00 PM

Session 2: 2:30 AM- 5:00 PM

VIP Session: 9:30 AM-11:30 AM

Join the many other attendees who will be there to taste all the donuts from the best bakers and coffee purveyors in the city! Best of all, all the profits will be donated to the Food Bank For New York City. Your ticket guarantees you entrance and a tasting from every vendor, three coffee tickets, and an Donut Fest event goodie bag!  The VIP session goes one step further by permitting early entrance and free admission for one child (under 3).
