Put on your stretchy pants and bust out the forks — Dessert Wars is coming to Florida.

This extra-sweet event is going to be in Tampa this fall. The  war will take place on Oct. 22 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

Dessert Wars is a celebration for all who claim to be ‘foodies’. Inside the venue there will be tons of local vendors competing for the Dessert Champion title. These vendors will welcome you to try an array of desserts such as cookies, cupcakes, doughnuts and ice cream.

General admission is $45, with access starting at 4 p.m and 30 sample dessert tickets with a ‘to-go’ box. For a $20 upgrade, have access throughout the whole event and get 50 sample tickets.

Tickets are available here.
