A popular festival dedicated to all things sweet is back on the West Coast for two weekends of desserts and so much more. Dessert Goals, the brainchild of Miraya Berke, goes to great lengths to create memorable dessert experiences for attendees.

This fall, the festival’s theme is Tie Dye Tiki – think bright tie dye shirts with tropical flair. The event is sponsored by Chase Sapphire, and Chase Sapphire cardmembers will enjoy special perks and benefits when they show their cards to gain access the Sapphire cardmember lounge at the festival.

Besides being able to try some of the best desserts the city has to offer through vendors, festival-goers will experience complimentary candy and beverages, an Instagram Garden dedicated specifically for dessert photos, a savory Salt Bar to cleanse the palate, and more sweet surprises.
