Discover a new spin on the Chocolate Affaire for 2020, as the city of Glendale presents The Chocolate Experience, Feb. 8-9. Held at the Glendale Civic Center this year, the event will move from an outdoor festival to a more intimate experience, with select chocolatiers and confectioners, craft artisans, artistic performances, wine and chocolate pairings and live music on the fountain terrace. Cerreta Candy Company will offer free tours of the candy factory, as well as its popular chocolate-pizza making booth.
The event offers free admission and parking, plus free shuttle rides to and from Cerreta’s.
Event hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The Glendale Civic Center is nestled in the heart of Historic Downtown Glendale at 5750 W. Glenn Dr. While downtown, visit the many charming shops and renowned restaurants to complete the day.
