Like crayons, chocolate comes in many varieties and tastes better when unwrapped before consuming. Scribble out cocoa cravings with today’s Groupon to the Northwest Chocolate Festival October 22 and 23 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Northwest rooms of the Seattle Center. Choose between the following ticket options:

  • For $12, you get a single-day ticket (up to a $25 value).
  • For $20, you get a weekend pass (up to a $40 value).

The Northwest Chocolate Festival beckons cocoa nuts with a slew of chocolate samples and demonstrations. Festival-goers can meander the halls of the Seattle Center noshing on chocolate tidbits, savoring their flavors as they melt on the tongue like ice cream poured on a first date's head. Throughout the festival, guests can taste fresh cacao fruit, crush cacao beans with traditional hand tools, and learn about the differences among chocolates from around the world. Confection gurus pass on their sacchariferous tutelage with discussions about cacao agriculture and the cocoa trade, and live demonstrations from chocolate chefs impart students with sweet skills such as how to prepare cocoa-based desserts and how to hide chocolate in onesie pockets. Though not included with today's Groupon, post-21-year-olds can pair their mouth-moistening morsels with libations from the wine, beer, and spirits garden (flights and full pours range from $3 to $7).

Northwest Chocolate Festival

Chocolate lovers gather at the annual Northwest Chocolate Festival, which showcases a variety of artisan chocolate makers. Guests will have access to sample chocolate from around the world and can partake in more than 70 workshops led by confectioners. Visitors can even hone their expertise through seminars on trade equity and cocoa farming.

Customer Reviews

It was fun and educational. Also, conveniently timed to dovetail with our trip into Seattle for an opera from 2 hrs away.

It was amazing and fun for our entire family! The only complaint was finding where it was specifically in the center area. We are new to the area and several groups of people we met were all looking for the building too. But it didn't take too long to find and totally worth it! We also enjoyed the kid area too!
