10 Favorite Photos from the Beacon Cupcake Festival

Beacon cupcake festival

I have a Serious Sweet Tooth….

So when I heard there was a Cupcake Festival, on Saturday, May 6th, in Beacon, NY, I knew I just had to go.

Beacon Cupcake Festival

There were plenty of cupcake lovers, as well as, Kettle Corn lovers and Food lovers to go around. It was nice to see such a great variety of vendors and a nice mix of people.

In addition to Delicious Cupcakes, we saw other vendors that included:

  • Ice Cream Truck
  • Cookies
  • Italian Ices
  • Homemade Dog Biscuits
  • Clothing Vendor
  • Jewelry
  • A variety of Food Trucks
  • Bouncy Houses and Slides for Children

As you can see from the above picture, most food and cupcake vendors had people waiting in lines for their delicious treats. As any foodie and dessert lover knows, ‘It is worth the wait to have your favorite treats.’

So my children and I scouted out one of our favorite cupcake vendors: ‘Forget Me Not Cupcakes’ ( and they did not disappoint. We decided that if we were going to stand in line for some cupcakes, then we were going to sample all the cupcakes ‘Forget Me Not Cupcakes’ had to offer. So we also waited in line. As you can see from the picture below, we bought a 6-pack of their delicious cupcakes.Forget Me Not CupcakesSix-Pack of cupcakes

They most certainly DID NOT disappoint!

Our variety pack included: (see picture above)

  • Reeses’ Peanut Butter –  (for me)
  • Strawberry Shortcake – (for me)
  • Caramel Macchiato –  (for my daughter)
  • Lemon Blueberry –  (for the hubby)
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough – (for me)
  • Oreo Cookies and Cream – (for my son) ­čśÇ

The entire event was sponsored by the local radio station K104.7 and they did a great job organizing the event.

We have definite plans to return to the Cupcake Festival next year. If this year’s event proves anything, it’s that it doesn’t matter what the weather is like, people sure do love their cupcakes and will come out to have a great time and satisfy their sweet tooth!
