CHOCOLATE, chocolate and even more chocolate! That’s what you are guaranteed to find at this year’s Chocolate Festival. Heaven for any sweet tooth fanatics, this two-day chocolate extravaganza takes place over the weekend of August 31 and September 1 (10am to 4pm daily) at The Woodmill in Stellenbosch.
Expect to find a chocolate lineup of gastronomical proportion. The usual plus a handful of artisanal gems and more. Oodles of chocolate, macaroons, decadent chocolate brownies, indulgent donuts, deliciously creamy (and dreamy) ice-cream, liquorice, marshmallows, candyfloss and so much more. There’s no end in sight for the sweetness overload at this not-be-missed event.
Balancing out the sweetness will be a selection of non-chocolate offerings. These range from charcuterie, hamburgers, pizzas, artisanal cheeses and breads. While young ones are kept entertained with a movie lounge, face painting and popcorn, Mom and Dad can relax and unwind with live music, gin, bubbly, wine and craft beer offerings.
It’s a fun filled family day in the winelands with something for young and old. Tickets cost R180 a person. Pre-booked adult tickets will each receive a goodie bag. Children under 18 pay R50 each, which includes entry, popcorn and a Slush Puppy. Pre-booking via www.webtickets.co.za is essential as tickets are limited to 2 500 per day and they sell out fast.
