DTLA Donut Festival Back June 8

The Donut Summit may be gone, but Donut Festival has taken its place. Are you hungry for those treats with holes? If so, set your calendar for June 9th for the returning DTLA Donut Festival. This year we have new vendors like Voodoo Doughnut out of Universal City Walk and returning favs like DK’s Donut Princess from Santa Monica.  And we are finally getting a DONUT EATING CONTEST! You'll probably even see our enemy of the site, the duke of donuts, with his dumb, smug, long stove pipe hat. Is he compensating for something? Probably.
