cupcake_fair_ad_01(Riverside, CA) Sample great cupcakes and enjoy some great deals brought to you by the Second Annual Inland Empire Cupcake Fair and the Riverside Downtown Partnership. This year’s “Cupcakes for a Cause” is on Sunday, May 4, 2014, at the Riverside Convention Center.

“’Cupcakes for a Cause’ is not only about cupcakes and fun but we’re also about giving back to the community by contributing to social and cultural non-profit organizations that impact our local community. That’s why proceeds from the event benefit Community Connect and the California Riverside Ballet. Another goal of the Cupcake Fair is to encourage the economic well-being of the surrounding business community,” said Su Pak, founder of and creator of the annual Inland Empire Cupcake Fair.

While the event at convention center on May 4th focuses on cupcake tastings, judging, giveaways, live entertainment, and other activities, the Cupcake Fair encourages event guests to visit the surrounding Downtown Riverside area and take advantage of the discounts being offered by participating businesses in celebration of the Cupcake Fair.
