The Oregon Chocolate Festival In Ashland, Oregon Is Your Opportunity To Taste Gourmet Chocolates From Local Restaurants And Vendors
There’s so much to love about the Oregon Chocolate Festival! Each year the festival features the dreamy, mouth-watering creations of dozens of West Coast chocolatiers. These food artisans present a variety of fine chocolates and chocolate-inspired products that tease the taste buds of over 1500 visitors. Chocoholics – ahem… that is, Chocolate Lovers – up and down the west coast dream about this weekend every year!
Several tantalizing events have come to be associated with the Oregon Chocolate Festival. The “Spa Chocolate Cocktail Party” for adults features a Chocolate Mojito Sugar Scrub. How fun is that?! A “Chocolate Product Competition” and a “Chocolate Dessert Competition & Silent Auction” raise the bar on chocolate creations. As always, outrageous chocolate sculptures will be on display showcasing the talents of world-class chefs and standout students from culinary institutes. Workshops on Beer & Chocolate pairings, and Wine & Chocolate pairings, and chef demonstrations are sprinkled throughout the festival. A Chocolate Maker’s Dinner kicks off the event, and a 5K Run/Walk start the festivities on the festival's final morning. There’s a little something for everyone!
Now after more than a dozen years, the festival continues to grow bigger and bigger every year, with more exhibits, more chocolaty samples and more entertainment.
Chocolate Lovers flock yearly to picturesque Ashland, Oregon from far and wide for three days of pure chocolate heaven! Many decide to combine their favorite Ashland activities, such as performances at the world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, journeying through the unparalleled Southern Oregon outdoors, indulging in world-class spa treatments, wine tasting in the Rogue and Applegate Valleys, and visiting any number of boutique shops, galleries, and restaurants in downtown Ashland with attendance at the chocolate festival.
