One stop shopping for some of the nation’s finest chocolates, coffees, cheeses, baked goods, candies, dips, sauces, wines, and beer.

Founded in 2009, the Southwest Chocolate & Coffee Fest brings together 120 purveyors of incredible chocolates, coffees, candies, teas, gourmet foods, and wine and beer. While not sampling and shopping from these unique businesses, attendees enjoy live music, cooking demonstrations, coffee seminars, baking contests, and a Kids Zone with free activities and live cow milking demonstrations.
By creating an affordable and accessible environment, the event now attracts over 18,000 chocoholics and coffee aficionados, making it the largest chocolate & coffee consumer festival in the country.
The event has grown to include purveyors of all types of gourmet foods and proudly presents craft cheeses, artisan breads and baked goods, and unique sauces and dips.

Over the years the festival has been featured in some national publications: CLICK HERE
The mission of the festival is twofold: 1) support the development and prosperity of small culinary businesses and 2) educate consumers of the farm-to-festival lifeline of both chocolate and coffee and the value of supporting local, culinary businesses.
