Lewisburg Chocolate Festival

A town turns into a decadent buffet of sweet delight!  The Lewisburg Chocolate Festival tasting tickets are only $1 each, and local vendors serve up everything from fluffy mousses to creamy truffles to chocolaty beers and cocktails. Think you can stuff in more? Compete in the bake-off or mousse eating contest.

As if sampling one of every chocolate concoction weren’t enough to do, the festival also includes events like chocolate themed feasts, films, runs, history, music and more. You can even watch chef demos, and try to recreate some of your festival favorites on your own.

Buy quickly! Tickets usually sell out during the festival.

Of course, chocolate isn’t the only delicious sweet you can enjoy. Beckley’s annual Sweet Treats Celebration brings together a variety of sugary selections— cookies, pies, ice cream… a dessert lover’s dream.

Sample tickets are only $5 for 6, so you can sample as many as you’d like. And the proceeds support the United Way. The event is held in conjunction with the Raleigh County Schools Day of Arts and Music, so there’s plenty more to do and explore while you eat.
