Presented by DallasChocolate.org, the Dallas Chocolate Festival is an annual event designed to raise awareness and appreciation for the amazing work of local and national fine chocolate craftsmen. This year we’re filling up theAddison Conference Centre on Saturday, September 13th, 2014, with more chocolatiers and chocolate makers than ever before. Attendees will enjoy sampling from the wall-to-wall chocolate from local and national artisans. Kids can even enjoy making their own chocolate treats at a special interactive kids’ table.
TICKETS TO THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT IN ADVANCE!!
BE SURE TO GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY!!
Chocolate makers scheduled to appear at the event include Art Pollard (Amano Artisan Chocolate, Utah); Ben Rasmussen (Potomac Chocolate, Virginia); Kristen Hard (Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Company); Scott Moore, Jr. (Tejas Chocolate, Houston); and Santiago Peralta (Pacari Chocolate, Ecuador).
Tickets for the Festival can be purchased for entry at three different times. Pick whichever time is most convenient for you — the chocolate vendors will be the same throughout the day.
Also included with a ticket purchase is a full day of classes and demonstrations that take place in an adjoining room of the Addison Conference Centre. Classes are great for beginners or dedicated chocolate fanatics. Adrienne Newman (Madame Cocoa) will return as the event’s mistress of ceremonies. While all classes are included with a ticket purchase, space is limited and is on a first come, first seated basis.
