Are you a Hoosier who loves chocolate? Then you’ll want to check out the Hoosier Chocolate Festival, happening on Saturday, February 12 at the Bridgewater Country Club in Carmel. Tipton County, Westfield and Zionsville Chambers are joining forces to celebrate all things chocolate in a first-ever, chocolate-centered festival.
Hoosier Chocolate Festival
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, chocolate vendors and bakeries from across central Indiana will gather in one place, giving guests a chance to try different types of chocolate treats, including candies, chocolate shakes, chocolate cocktails and more. Visitors can also view mixology demonstrations and cooking demonstrations that center on chocolate. Mixologists will show guests how to prepare a yummy chocolate cocktail and cooking demonstrations will show visitors how to make special snacks using the delectable treat.
A variety of vendors will be set up at booths with chocolate to purchase to take home. Guests can also talk with chocolate experts and find party vendors and caterers.
Live music will be playing throughout the afternoon and evening for a relaxing atmosphere.
Benefiting Small Business
The Hoosier Chocolate Festival is an effort to showcase the many bakeries, chocolate shops and small businesses in the Indianapolis area, and a way to highlight vendors who are excited to share their specialties. Steve Latour, executive director of the Westfield Chamber of Commerce, says that as the Hoosier Chocolate Festival gains momentum, the event will aspire to include even more bakeries and chocolatiers in the years to come.
