Is there Such a Thing as Too Much Chocolate?

One of West Virginia’s fastest growing events will be here soon – the Lewisburg Chocolate

Lewisburg Chocolate Festival

Festival.  A day after our own heart…a day where eating chocolate to excess is not only o.k. but encouraged!

If you haven’t made it to the April 9 event before, you’re in for a treat.  Organizers say this year’s festival will be the biggest yet – with more than 35 different chocolate samplings being offered in the downtown shops and restaurants.   And tickets are just $1 each.

In between all that eating, you can learn to make chocolate desserts too.  Chefs from
The Greenbrier and even the White House will be onhand and offering free demonstrations.

Music? They’ve got it.  Bands including Fayetteville’s own Wild Rumpus and Lewisburg’s The Jarmovers will take the outdoor stage as well as broadway styled tunes from the stars of Greenbrier Valley Theatre’s Little Women.

Kids stuff?
You bet.  The mousse eating contest is always something to see as well as the outdoor storytelling, balloon artists, and kid’s tastings like chocolate pasta and chocolate edible hand painting.

If you go:

*Remember tasting tickets often sell out – so grab yours in advance by visiting

*The downtown Lewisburg streets are closed off to allow for a fun, festive atmosphere.
Consult a Lewisburg map for tips on where to park.
