Come for the day or make a weekend of it — your ticket is good for the entire weekend!

What will be more fun… your nose being tickled by the effervescence of the root beer floats or navigating the gauntlet of the cakewalk? The Sweet Shoppe offers a little a bit of something for every age.

Learn to make American dessert classics from the past, such as sticky toffee pudding and ice cream cakes on the Sweet Shoppe’s live professional stage, AKA the Sticky Stage. When you feel like wandering, sample some artisan confections and browse through the delightful selection of specialty vendors showcasing unique items with a chorus of Sinatra crooning in your ear.

Adults, stay for the evening and shimmie up to the bar for The Sweet Shoppe After Dark. Still as sweet as the afternoon events, this promises to be an evening of fun and surprises, with Happy Hour specials, including The Sweet Shoppe’s signature Sugar Mama Martini, music and surprises. 

Music programming during the day will feature old-time favorites from the ’50s and ’60s. The Sweet Shoppe After Dark showcases local DJs providing best-loved numbers from the ’70s through the ’90s.


Other highlights each day include La Petit Sweet for the kiddies. Professional pastry students from Laney College’s Culinary Arts Program will guide them in creating their very own pastry from scratch!
