From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, September 21, and Sunday, September 22, 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 to educational seminars. 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.
