Breaking News: City of Roses Becomes the City of Chocolate!

January 19th, 2016

Even if it is just for one weekend, thousands of people will gather in one place in Portland, Oregon to nibble, sip, taste, and feast on chocolate. The festival is appropriately named ChocolateFest, and we are proud to say that USA Today voted our festival as one of the top ten specialty food festivals in the country!

At this year’s event you will get the chance to taste chocolate prepared many different ways, and of course be able to purchase your favorites, watch presentations and demonstrations centered around chocolate and how it’s used, educate yourself on the truths behind chocolate from actual chocolatiers, and even have a little sip sip of some wine with your sweets — a perfect pairing. And remember, it’s not like you’re doing this for nothing. ChocolateFest is actually a fundraiser for the World Forestry Center. That’s pretty much the best excuse to eat as much chocolate as you can!
