2022 Exhibitor Information

Dallas Chocolate Festival 2022

The Dallas Chocolate Festival and Dallas Chocolate Conference will be held in-person in September 2022!

Put your brand in front of thousands of people who appreciate quality chocolates and the craftspeople who make them.

The 2022 edition of the DALLAS CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL will include a full Festival on Friday Night and Saturday during the day, the weekend of September 9th & September 10th, 2022. It is a fantastic opportunity to SELL your products to an increasingly sophisticated group of CHOCOLATE CONSUMERS.

Companies that would like to reach attendees who are in the CHOCOLATE BUSINESS can register to exhibit at the DALLAS CHOCOLATE CONFERENCE which will take place on Friday, September 9th, 2022, from 10am – 5pm.

A company can register to exhibit at either or both events with the same registration form. Both events take place at the FIG in Downtown Dallas.

The theme for 2022 is “The Magic of Chocolate.” Our fun and mysterious theme will allow you to express the whimsy and mystique you find in chocolate. It will also explore all the different parts of chocolate — from growers to bean-to-bar makers to chocolatiers and beyond.

The 2022 Dallas Chocolate Festival will celebrate the creativity and talent from chocolate makers and chocolatiers the world over. The goal is to educate the public about artisan chocolate… one bar at a time. Our belief in education also is reflected in our scholarship program. A portion of funds from this event will provide full scholarships to pastry students enrolled in North Texas college-level culinary programs. To date, DallasChocolate.org has provided over $20,000 in scholarships for local culinary programs.

This is a FANTASTIC opportunity for you to get your products in front of a very targeted audience of fine chocolate lovers and a great opportunity to be in front of Dallas crowds again!
