Every year in early March scores of chocolate companies and over 1500 chocolate lovers converge here for the Oregon Chocolate Festival. Dedicated entirely to Oregon chocolatiers and their amazing creations, chocophiles will encounter unique combinations, unexpected flavor profiles and decadent infusions. Taste truffles, bars, crunchy toffees, marshmallows, chocolate drinks, chocolate flavored cheeses, chewy cookies, cupcakes, sauces and syrups, chocolate covered nuts, ice cream and other gooey, delicious goodies.
Well established and nationally recognized chocolatiers who originated in the Rogue Valley will be present along with a host of smaller but very exciting boutique companies. Past participants have included Lillie Belle Farms from Central Point and other notable confectioners from Southern Oregon. In addition to the opportunity for sampling and purchasing chocolate, the festival also offers visitors a wonderful lineup of events, and a portion of its proceeds go to charity.
