February is the month of love (according to Hallmark) and nothing screams love like a chocolate festival. You can get your hands on unlimited amounts of sweets at this Nashville chocolate festival next month. The giant sweets fest will set the mood for V-day (or just simply help you celebrate the month of all things candy).
If you are an avid sweets fiend like us, settle your sweet tooth at the Lightning 100's Chocolate Affair in Nashville on Feb. 8. Indulge in all the chocolate, candy, baked goods and even savory treats you could ever dream of. One thing is for certain: you'll be 100% chocolate wasted.
You may get a cavity, but it's for a cause. The annual Chocolate Affair benefits Musicares, which provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need.
The event at Nashville's Parthenon brings together the best local artisans from chocolatiers and candy connoisseurs to food makers to bring you an explosion of sugary (and salty) goodness.
You'll get to indulge in yummy treats from over 25 vendors including 8 Lavendar Lane, Bacon & Caviar, Sweet Cheeses! and Tiff's Treats.
What's a chocolate party if there isn't a chocolate fountain? We honestly can't think of anything that wouldn't taste delicious covered in melty chocolate, so go all out!
It also wouldn't be a true chocolate extravaganza if there was no wine to pair it with. This 21 and up event has lots of liquor, wine and beer from over ten vendors so you won't only be getting chocolate wasted.
The general admission tickets are $45 and they get you unlimited tastings of literally all the treats, an adventure through the chocolate fountain and access to all the art galleries. You can even save $5 each if you buy double date tickets.
To add even more to the class of it all, there will be live jazz music too. This is the absolute ideal early V-day date night, but it's great for all the single ladies too.
