I Love Chocolate Fest

Everyone gains a pound or two over the holidays. But November 9 and 10 in Huntington, you can get things started early with the most decadent celebration of them all: the 5th Annual I Love Chocolate Fest.

 

The event title is pretty self-explanatory: it’s two full days of chocolate everything. Warm your spirits with a steaming cup of hot chocolate. Indulge in a slice of Black Forrest Cake.  Or what about a chocolate-covered strawberry to put a little hair of the dog on your Halloween candy hangover? The festival goes way beyond your normal brownies and cookies: you’ll be able to binge on unusual and unorthodox creations like chocolate-covered bacon and tater tots dipped in chocolate sauce. Really want to get into the swing?  Enter the chocolate covered donut eating contest and pray for your stomach the next day!

 

It may not take long to fill up on cocoa delights, but happily, there’s still plenty to do even after you’ve had your fill.   Master chocolatiers and pastry makers will be on-hand to offer cake decorating demonstrations and teach you chocolate molding in interactive workshops. There will also be live music and entertainment, plus kids’ activities and a bounce house so your little ones can jump off their sugar high. Beer, wine, and chocolate flavored spirits are available so you can take your indulgence one step further, and local shopping and craftsmen will be on hand to round out the fun – and maybe get you started on your holiday shopping.

The 5th Annual I Love Chocolate Fest takes place on Saturday, November 9th and Sunday, November 10th from 10 am to 6 pm. Tickets can be purchased online or day-of and are $15 for adults and $9 for children; you can also purchase a $25 VIP Package which includes one glass of wine, one chocolate-covered strawberry, and an I Love Chocolate Fest hat. Parking is available on site and is free.
