EVENT UPDATE – September 20th, 2021
Sadly, we can’t put on a good event yet. Many of our chocolate vendors are not comfortable with large groups indoors, especially passing out chocolate samples. And we fully support our vendors and their opinions. Our classes won’t be able to happen either. And on top of that, we can’t even get staff to work the event. So, we are setting this for March 5th. This will be the last postponement and date change. If the event doesn’t happen in March, we will cancel it and apply refunds. I really am so sorry. Taste CLE and Lago has done everything they can to make this event happen. With the current covid situation and now much it affects our events, these indoor events are just very hard to pull off. It’s not just Covid and the worry of people getting sick, obviously that plays a big part. But this staffing crisis so many are seeing is real and it’s having a horrible impact on so many.Most of you have been so patient and we are beyond grateful. Seeing we’ve waited this long, one more round of waiting won’t be the end of the world. And by March, we are very confident that things will be stable and we will be able to do an awesome Chocolate Fest for all of you. Thank you for your understanding. Truly.
The 4th Annual Chocolate Fest Cleveland. An event for everyone. Come to the biggest Chocolate event of the year. There will be chocolate vendors throughout providing samples of all their goodies, wine & chocolate pairing classes, truffle making classes, chocolate martini bar, craft beer, wine and food.

WINE PAIRINGS & EDUCATIONAL CLASSES
This year, we’ve added a bunch of new mini events that you can sign up for. There is a wine/chocolate pairing class, truffle making class, the healthy side of chocolate class and more. You can add any of these classes to your shopping cart after you’ve selected which general admission ticket you’d like. These classes will be posted soon.
BARS & FOOD
There will be a full cash bar that includes our chocolate martini bar, other speciality cocktails, craft beer and wine. Prices range from $6 to $8 a drink. You can also buy a general admission ticket that includes two drink tickets. These drink tickets are discounted to $5 each so you save money buying the drink tickets in advance. Our staff will be walking around with pizza slices and other snacks which is included in your ticket purchase.
The following are classes that are available at the event. They are limited seating and are add ons to the event. You do still need to purchase your general admission ticket to the event.
