Chocolate Festival 2019

One of my favourite sayings is: ‘Save earth, it’s the only planet with chocolate.’ In our house, the chocolate festival never really goes away, and I’ve devised all sorts of cunning ways to hide my favourite chocs from the other choc monsters in the family. I always lose but hey, one day I’ll find the perfect hiding place…On the other hand, sharing is caring, right?

So, it gives me great pleasure to share with you news from On the Marque PR about this year’s Chocolate Festival. But first, a little temptation:

Ready for the details? ‘Chocolate, chocolate and even more chocolate! That’s what you are guaranteed to find at this year’s Chocolate Festival. Heaven for any sweet tooth fanatics, this two-day chocolate extravaganza takes place over the weekend of 31 August and 1 September (10am to 4pm daily) at The Woodmill in Stellenbosch.

Expect to find a chocolate line up of gastronomical proportion: the usual, plus a handful of artisanal gems and more. Oodles of chocolate, macaroons, decadent chocolate brownies, indulgent donuts, deliciously creamy (and dreamy) ice-cream, liquorice, marshmallows, candyfloss and so much more. There’s no end in sight for the sweetness overload at this not-be-missed event.

Balancing out the sweetness will be a selection of non-chocolate offerings. These range from charcuterie, hamburgers, pizzas, artisanal cheeses and breads and so much more. The young ones will be kept entertained with a movie lounge, face painting and popcorn . While the little ones are kept entertained in a supervised area mom and dad can relax and unwind with live music, gin, bubbly, wine and craft beer offerings.

A fun-filled family day to the winelands with something in store for young and old. Tickets cost R180 per person and includes entry and a goodie bag. Entry for children under 18 is R50 each and includes popcorn and a Slush Puppy. Pre-booking via is essential as tickets are limited to 2 500 per day and they sell out fast!
