Toronto Life’s 2017 Doughnut Festival presented by Dufferin Mall

When it comes to summer in the city of Toronto, there are always so many amazing events that take place. But my favourite of all are those centered around the incredible food scene in the city I call home. Thankfully this year includes Toronto Life’s 2017 Doughnut Festival presented by Dufferin Mall on June 25th and I cannot WAIT to attend! Come see all the delicious details and how you can join us! 

Taking place in our neck of the woods in the west end of the city, Dufferin Mall is set to host one of the most anticipated foodie events, gathering together some of the best doughnuts from around the city to show what they do best. And the best part is that tickets are super affordable (while quantities last). This is the perfect event to enjoy with the family or friends, and you know that Julio & I will be there eating our way through the delicious options as seen in the June issue of Toronto Life! 

Tickets are $15 and include quarter-sized samples from each of the fifteen vendors, as well as a six-pack of doughnuts to-go. Family passes are $30 for two adults and two children; including individual samples for all four parties as well as one six-pack of doughnuts to-go. Children ages 2 to 12 get in for $5 each.

Featured Toronto Life Tasting Station vendors and doughnut highlights include:

  • A wall made of doughnuts, interactive and fun photo opportunities from Glory Hole, serving up the deep-fried Toast and Butter
  • Meatlovers line-up for the Maple Beef Bacon Doughnut, fresh from Caplansky Deli
  • Celebrating a birthday on June 25? Jelly Modern has you covered with the Vanilla Birthday Cake Doughnut
  • Gluten-free, vegan, and overall worry-free Chocolate Crinkle Doughnut from Sorelle and Co.
  • Bar Raval’s spin on a traditional Spanish custard dessert, with their Crema Catalana doughnut

“Prepare for the sugar rush on Sunday, June 25, when many of the doughnuts featured in the magazine’s June doughnut ranking will be fresh and ready under one roof. It promises to be an afternoon of frosted and glazed goodness.”
