A chocolate festival is an event that celebrates chocolate. It often features chocolate delicacies from local chocolate makers, arts and crafts, games, music and other forms of entertainment. Places like Oakdale, CA and Fairfax, VA hold chocolate festivals each year. Many times, a chocolate festival raises money for charity in order to benefit a specific nonprofit organization.

People who are unable to attend a chocolate festival can host their own chocolate celebration. Simply invite friends and family to the home and provide them with a variety of chocolate-themed activities. An evening of sweet chocolate, games, and other entertainment will help every chocolate-lover in a person's social circle celebrate their taste for chocolate.

One activity that can be included in a chocolate festival is an Oreo® cookie stacking contest. Party guests compete to see which person can create the tallest tower of cookies. The towers must be made without the use of glue, tape, or any other type of adhesive. The person who stacks the highest tower wins a small prize.

Before the party begins, spend some time doing research on the history of chocolate. Compile a series of trivia questions that can be used in a chocolate trivia game. Divide the guests into two teams and ask them questions about chocolate. The team with the most points can each win a chocolate candy bar or a small box of gourmet chocolates.

Another possible game for the chocolate festival is one that involves unwrapping Hershey's Kisses®. Two players wear oven mitts and unwrap as many Hershey's Kisses® as they can within one minute. The player who unwraps the most candies can win a small prize. This game is surprisingly difficult and will challenge all the guests who attend the chocolate festival.

Many people love ice cream, and chocolate fanatics are no exception. Feature a sundae-building station at the chocolate festival. Provide ice cream, chocolate syrup, a variety of toppings, and whipped cream. Allow the guests to build and eat their own chocolate sundaes.

After the guests have had their fill of chocolate, they can watch a chocolate-themed movie. A family-friendly choice is the 1971 film Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory or the 2005 version Charlie and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp. If the guests are clamoring for more chocolate, serve chocolate-flavored popcorn.

Chocolate festivals are held all over the world, featuring a variety of chocolate delicacies, games, and entertainment. If a person is unable to attend a large festival, she can host her own chocolate affair. With advance planning of activities and a supply of delectable chocolate, a chocolate event provides guests with the opportunity to enjoy an entertaining evening with fellow chocolate fanatics.

How can anyone say no to a chocolate festival? I went to a major chocolate festival in 2009 and loved every minute of it. They had a fashion show with dresses made out of chocolate. They had chocolate fountains everywhere. They even had chocolate-based cocktails for adult visitors.

A local charity holds a chocolate festival every year as a fundraiser. What they do is invite all of the local restaurants and civic organizations to the mall and set up booths along the interior walkways. All of the participants create chocolate-based items that are broken down into individual samples.

Visitors start at one end of the mall and follow the path to the other end, picking up samples as they go. Once their plates are full, they find somewhere to sit and eat. Meanwhile, there is live entertainment on a stage. I look forward to this event every year, even though I'm really not supposed to eat that much chocolate.
