Easter weekend just got a whole lot sweeter thanks to the 2024 Durban Dessert Festival. 

The three-day festival will showcase the best local desserts that KZN has to offer. The Easter Edition is taking place at Oceans Mall in Umhlanga from 29 to 31 March. 

"Indulge in the finest desserts, savour the flavours, and immerse yourself in a world of sweetness by the sea. Oceans Mall is set to be the perfect backdrop for a weekend of joy, laughter, and, of course, delicious treats!" the festival said in an Instagram post. 

Dessert lovers can look forward to sweet treats, as well as live entertainment from local musicians. There will also be a crafts corner for people looking for unique crafts to take home.

The 2023 festival took place at Saxony Westwood Mall. Ras Zero, Tim Lewis, and DJ Tarriq Sewps were some of the performers who kept attendees entertained last year.

This year's event promises to better than ever! 

There will be plenty of desserts on offer. From favourites such as mini donuts and decadent cupcakes to dessert cups, mochi, macarons, and churros - there's something for everyone. 

Dessert, food, and craft vendor applications are also open. More info here: vendor details.
