Taste, Learn and Celebrate! Chocolate Lovers Unite!


We present two days of pure chocolate decadence and the highest caliber of indulgence through chocolate education, chocolate making classes and professional level tasting.


The NW Chocolate festival hosts 70 classes, chocolate tasting and workshops taught by top culinary professionals and award winning artisan chocolate makers. We aim to share experiences in chocolate from the farm all the way to scrumptious chocolate bar and sweet confection.


A taste of what you will experience

•Learn about chocolate with presentations by award winning chocolate makers

•Crush cacao beans by hand using traditional tools

•Meet cacao farmers from Ecuador and Peru

•Learn to taste and distinguish fine chocolate from different origins around the world

•Taste and experience fresh cacao fruit direct from South America, a rare experience in the United States

•Discover the health benefits of chocolate

•Learn how to temper chocolate, make truffles and ganaches, and fine desserts

•Seduce your senses in the Aphrodisiac Room

We are excited to taste chocolate with you and offer educational workshops and presentations to festival attendees in five of the Northwest Rooms at the Seattle Center. The festival features 16 hours of chocolate culinary demonstrations at the culinary kitchen in the Chocolate Dessert and Confection Room, two full days of talks on culture, trade equity and cocoa agriculture in the World of Chocolate Room. We also offer the opportunity to enjoy wine, coffee, tea, and beer paired with chocolate in the Beer and Wine Garden.
