Presented by DallasChocolate.org, the Dallas Chocolate Conference & Festival is an annual event designed to raise awareness and appreciation for the amazing work of local and national fine chocolate craftsmen. Local North Texas vendors and chocolatiers from all over our great country all in one place!!
The Dallas Chocolate Conference & Festival is two events in one:
The Chocolate Conference, also included with a ticket purchase, takes place in an adjoining room of the Addison Conference Centre and kicks off at 10:00 AM with the Chocolatiers’ Roundtable — a free-flowing panel discussion with all participating chocolatiers. Adrienne Newman (Madame Cocoa) will return as the Chocolate Conference’s mistress of ceremonies.
The Chocolate Festival is a room of wall-to-wall chocolate where attendees can choose to sample chocolates from over fifteen chocolatiers and chocolate makers. Admission includes ten coupons (three for kids) redeemable for chocolate samples at the Festival. Tickets for the Festival can be purchased for entry at three different times. Tickets can be purchased for whichever time is most convenient — the chocolate vendors are the same throughout the day.
Confirmed chocolatiers and chocolate makers include:
Barry Callebaut USA
Amano Artisan Chocolate
Chocolates El Rey
