Life in Lewisburg is about to get a little sweeter. The 10th Annual Lewisburg Chocolate Festival returns Saturday, Apr. 9 to downtown Lewisburg. Plans are underway to make this year’s festival better than ever; chocolate lovers everywhere should save the date. The weekend event includes an exciting schedule of chocolate themed activities including close to 40,000 tastings, a chocolate mousse eating contest, chef demonstrations, live music and dinner specials at local restaurants.
In past years, tasting tickets for Saturday’s all-day Tasting Extravaganza have sold out, so festival-goers are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance. Tasting tickets are being sold online at www.lewisburgchocolatefestival.com for $5 per packet of five tickets. Tickets purchased online will be available the day of the festival at will-call inside City Hall. Tickets also may now be purchased in person at the following locations: Harmony Ridge Gallery, Greenbrier Valley Visitors Center, Greenbrier Valley Baking Company and Re/Max Vision Quest. As the event nears, more information about specific chocolate offerings will be available, but they are certain to exceed the expectations of the most discerning chocolate aficionado.
The Lewisburg Chocolate Festival is a nonprofit charitable organization. Vendors can feel good about supporting the community while promoting their business or organization. For information about becoming a chocolate vendor at this year’s festival, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
