It was great! Having it at the Auto Museum was a wonderful idea, because along with all the chocolate, we were able to check out the museum all on one ticket. Loved the museum too.

The only thing that was a little disappointing was that there were not enough vendors.

The festival did not live up to it's description. I was disappointed at the number and quality of the vendors and the items for sale were over priced.

VERY DESAPOINTING experience! first of all there were just few merchants and you don't even really taste chocolat you have to buy it!.You have to buy coins and 1 con egal one dollar and they were selling item very expensive like 1 chocolat lollipop at 3 coins so $3!!! since you have the coins at hands you feel like you have to spend them all! a ripe off!The décor was all 1960's cars and had NOTHING to do with the chocolat theme! it looks like a huge hangar or a parking space and the ambiance was depressing. Upstairs there are games for kids that has nothing to do with chocolat! I was lucky to have bought the tickets through groupon because of the price reduction but really it wasn't even worth it.I feel that I wasted my time and my money.Thanks for giving me the opportunity to express the experience.

Walk around and see all the chocolate items before you start to purchase. We didn't do that and bought things at each table. We ate way too much!!!

The "festival" was pretty lame. Mostly just various businesses selling their foods at high prices. Some things were nicer than others. The coolest part was the actual Auto Museum itself. As an excuse to go there, totally worth it. But to pay money on top of the museum fee just to have the opportunity to then pay extra money to buy chocolate? Completely stupid. Just go when it's no the chocolate festival, get into the museum for $10 and check out all the Batmobiles. Bring a box of chocolates or a milkshake if you really need your fix while checking out cars. I didn't really care about the chocolate demonstrations though, so those might have been cool.

There was nothing exciting there. Nothing special, shows were few & far in between. Much smaller that advertised.

There are not very Many tastings for free. It's a bunch of chocolate vendors that are selling chocolate treats. The wine with chocolate tasting wasn't free either. The car museum was fun for the family though and the arcade was free of charge.

From Our Editors

The Festival of Chocolate touts itself as the largest all-chocolate event in the Southeast, delighting adults and children alike with demonstrations from world-class chocolatiers and pastry chefs, who dole out plenty of tasty treats. Vendor booths display baked and molded treats, where sweet teeth can sink into cupcakes and brownies, break through truffles, and bathe in creamy beverages. Award-winning pastry chefs demonstrate baking techniques and sculpt large, intricate, opulent dessert structures to lure attendees with the ambrosial scents of chocolate mastery and the enjoyably gooey texture of chocolate malleability. And kids can take breaks from learning about and devouring chocolate with trips to fashion shows or the arcade, while parents imbibe in chocolate and wine-pairing seminars.
