This weekend Big Bite Events will be producing their newest event for the first year and this event is called Sugar Rush! On both Saturday & Sunday, December 5 & 6 at the OC Fair & Event Center star chefs, bakers and confectioners will come together to create an unforgettable dessert fest and marketplace to satisfy even the most decadent sweet tooth. Big Bite Events is also the producer of the ever so popular Big Bite Bacon Fest, so this event is sure to impress!

Sugar Rush will be jam packed with entertainment, chef competitions, demonstrations, and tastings of delicious sweet treats and shopping from some of the best pastry chefs and confectioners in Southern California.
The event is sponsored in part by Baker’s Bodega and Wilton. A portion of event proceeds benefit local non-profit organizations Share Our Selves and Festival of Children. Enjoying decadent desserts and helping charity sounds like a win win to me! 🙂
