Join the festivities for a one-day edible exploration of LA’s favorite pastry at the first-ever DTLA Donut Festival at Union Station. The momentously mouthwatering event will showcase the donut in all its many guises: plain, glazed, and filled, traditional and new wave along with “donut-adjacent” treats including churros, apple fritters, and donut holes.
Stroll through the The Whole Donut Marketplace, a baker’s dozen of donut vendors from LA’s old-school cult favorites to trendy “fashion-forward” donuts from celebrity pastry chefs. A “live fry” donut station will make hot donuts to order and a “Pimp Your Donut” experience will allow visitors to customize their donuts at a “Flavor Bar” of various fillings and toppings.
The DTLA Donut Festival will also include Third-Wave coffee vendors for dunking as well as donut friendly foods including fried chicken and sausages to round out the edible offerings.
Chef demos will teach visitors how to make their own photo-ready donuts. There will be hands-on coffee workshops from the Institute of Domestic Technology to dive deep into the technical how-to of the perfect cup.
