Calling all sweet tooths, Toronto will be hosting a MONTH LONG chocolate festival this November that will showcase some of the most delicious chocolate treats from around the world.
Now in its 12th decadent year, the Toronto Chocolate Festival incorporates as many chocolate-related events possible for attendees, participating chocolatiers, pastry chefs and restaurant chefs. The events, of course, are all powered by chocolate.
This year's festival will feature a wide variety of chocolate-themed events with something available for everyone.
For the tea drinkers, there will be an afternoon Chocolate High Tea, which is a decadent afternoon tea complemented with chocolates and chocolate pastries every weekend during the festival.
For those who love all things chocolate, the Luxury Chocolate Show needs to be on your radar. This is where chocolate artisans will “show, sample and sell” their unique products and services. Guests can sample a variety of chocolates and enjoy chocolate-themed events like a marketplace and a chocolate maker demo stage.
If you enjoy dressing up, you might want to consider attending the Chocelite Dinner, which is a full course dinner infused with chocolate prepared by Toronto finest chefs. Seriously, this will be a chocolate lovers dream dinner as the appetizer, the main course, dessert, and drinks are all made or infused with chocolate.
If you enjoy supporting a good cause, you need to attend the ChocOlympics, a crazy and fun event where Firefighters, Police, and Paramedics fight in a chocolate eating contest with proceeds going towards supporting local charities.
Chocolate lovers can get a head start on their holiday shopping at the Christmas Chocolate and Pastry Fair. This massive event will feature the delicious works of chocolate and pastry chefs in addition to a marketplace, demo stage, chocolate making roundtable, chocolate eating contests, games, and much more.
The deliciously sweet events will be running all month long at various venues throughout the city. Make sure to head to the Chocolate Festival website to find full details and ticket options for each event.
