Fair warning: There’s a 100 percent chance of sprinkles on May 1.

That’s because – after a two year hiatus – OnMilwaukee is bringing Donut & Coffee Fest back to Historic Turner Hall at 1040 N. Vel R. Philips Ave.

This sweet event, which takes place on Sunday, May 1 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. will feature samples from a wide variety of doughnut shops, bakeries and coffee purveyors.

All attendees will get to taste a variety of samples; however, VID (Very Important Donuts) ticket-holders will enjoy early access to the event (at 9 a.m.), plus a load of spiffs, including a free Press Premium Alcohol Seltzer.

The growing list of vendors currently includes scrumptious doughnuts and buzz-worthy beverages from these local purveyors:

But, wait. We glazed over the best part! All attendees can also enjoy fun photo ops and activities, including the chance to win prizes by playing our donut ring toss game. No actual doughnuts will be harmed during the ring toss.

Parking will be available in the Interstate Parking lot at 332 W. State St.; but guests are also encourage to consider taking advantage of Bublr Bike rentals to get to and from the event.

In the end, the event is gonna be a hole-lotta sweet, sweet fun!

Do-nut delay! Get your tickets

VID (Very Important Donuts) tickets are $25 and include early access to the event starting at 9 a.m., 12 sampling tickets, a Donut & Coffee Fest mug and a free Press Premium Alcohol Seltzer (for attendees 21+).
