The Spoonful of Sugar Festival takes place on five regions – Spoonful of Sugar and the four SOS Shopping regions – you’ll find links to all the key locations here. There are over 150 stores, selling clothes, hair, jewellery – and a really great range of home and garden items.

In addition, there’s a gacha orchard, a series of auctions and a large number of raffles (including items such as a 5,000 Linden Truth giftcard). And there’s also the Raffle House, a beautiful, fully furnished New England style home (and a gazebo), filled with donated items donated by many of Second Life’s top home decor creators. And one lucky person will win this with a L$100 raffle ticket!

There’s also a full programme of events, including musicians, dance shows and fashion shows – you can see the full schedule here.

The whole area takes place in a beautiful New England Fall setting, with a riotous display of colour, and the stores around in neat village squares.  It all makes for a beautiful event experience.
