From 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, September 29, and Sunday, September 30, culinary professionals and artisanal chocolate makers will descend on the Washington State Convention Center to lead a roster of 70 classes, chocolate tastings, and workshops. Events range from hands-on activities, such as crushing cacao beans with traditional tools to seminars on cacao agriculture, where attendees can meet cacao farmers from Peru and Ecuador. During tastings, connoisseurs can sample fruit straight from the cacao tree—a rarity in the United States—or experiment with chocolate and drink pairings. Upon entry, festivalgoers receive a chocolate-tasting passport, which staffers stamp at each session the guests visit; their fully stamped passport earns them a masters in chocolate certificate upon departure.

Northwest Chocolate Festival

Chocolate lovers unite at the Northwest Chocolate Festival, an annual event dedicated not just to eating chocolate in its many forms, but to tracking its journey from cacao bean to confection. Visitors hone their expertise through seminars on trade equity and cacao farming, chocolate-making workshops led by confectioners, and tastings where palates learn to distinguish between milk chocolate and a chocolate bar clumsily forced inside a milk jug. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefits local nonprofits aligned with the festival’s mission. Recipients are announced yearly.
