check schedule on Homepage Events

We are rolling out some new events, designed to introduce more people to the world of craft chocolate. 

These new events allow us to host more guests at one time while still spending dedicated time in a relatively small group setting. We hope to offer these events more frequently than we were able to offer our previous tour/tasting event.

Choose from:

  • Chocolate 101 (family friendly event - no age restrictions)
  • Craft Chocolate Tasting/Demonstration 
  • Chocolate Making Experience
