Chocolate Fest 2017

Historic Downtown Long Grove proudly presents another weekend dedicated to two of life’s sweetest pleasures – Chocolate Festival presented by Long Grove Confectionary May 19th, 20th, and 21st!

Historic Downtown Long Grove’s quintessential festival kicks off the season each year with three days dedicated to old-world charms, family frills and delicious chocolate.  Only at Chocolate Fest do life’s most delectable cravings come together with live music to conjure up a time bygone.  It’s where children roam the village in search of chocolate treasures (during the Chocolate Scavenger Hunt) while parents zig zag after them in and out of boutiques hunting for their own hidden gems.  It’s where local vendors dot cobble-stone streets wheeling out chocolate-infused creations, everything from chocolate pudding pie pops to burgers with chocolate sauce.  At the Kid Zone, young souls forget about their phones in lieu of throwback fun, with interactive activities like pie-eating contests, potato sack races, dancing and the bubble show stealing their attention.

Presented by Long Grove Confectionery, Chocolate Fest 2017 will introduce new features like a chocolate demo tent and additional satellite parking lots to add to the continuous music on multiple stages and inviting historical backdrop that makes this festival an annual fan favorite.
