Stay calm, but a donut and beer festival is hitting the shores of Melbourne on Sunday the 12th of March between 2 – 8pm and on Monday the 13th between 12 – 6pm

Try naming a more dynamic duo.
We’ll wait.

You know that episode in The Simpsons where Homer has a dream he’s in a kind of fantasy candy-land where all the cream-filled cakes and sugar-coated lollies run around feeding him with massive smiles on their faces? I don’t think the donut festival will be quite that animated, but it definitely will be a whole other world filled to the brim with all kinds of doughnuts – little ones, big ones, vegan ones, gluten-free ones – there will even be a sushi donut! You name it and it will be there; plus other food and beverages will be available for good measure.

There will even be a giant donut wall. We’re not sure what this means or what it is exactly, but something tells us it’s going to be Instagram-worthy.

The Donutfest will be held at The Village – an amazing and (very) extensive bar and restaurant on Melbourne’s St Kilda Road. The Village includes a beer garden, an arbor, bistro, terrace and the famous Ormond Hall. So much room for activities!

There’s no entry fee but if you feel like handing out a gold coin donation towards Eat Up Australia’s mission, every donation will go towards giving lunches to young Australians who go hungry every day at school. A worthy event, with a worthy cause.

We donut know about you, but this is where you’ll find us this weekend.
