ChocFest 2018

There’s a treat in store for chocolate lovers when ChocFest returns to Melton Mowbray from 17-18 November 2018.

ChocFest is one of the UK’s most popular chocolate festivals and at this year’s event, there will be some of the finest chocolate and associated food and drink products to taste and buy from some of the UK’s best local producers.

Exhibitors will be offering chocolates, chocolate cakes, pies, crepes, brownies, tarts, liqueurs, doughnuts, macarons, desserts, marshmallows, biscuits and even chocolate pizzas, kebabs, moonshine, mead, wine and beer. Other stands will be selling cakes, pies, champagne, wine and other goods in the run up to Christmas. New for this year is a dedicated Spirits Hall with gin, whisky, vodka, rum and liqueurs.
