McLean Chocolate Festival Returns Jan. 31

McLean Chocolate Festival Returns Jan. 31

The Rotary Club of McLean is hosting its fifth annual Chocolate Festival at the McLean Community Center on Sunday, Jan. 31, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Each year the festival has grown in both the number and quality of vendors, and in the number of visitors attending.

This year’s Festival vendors include C and D Sweets, Dave’s Candy Kitchen, Fair Trade Winds, Fluffy Thoughts, Zinga! Yogurt and many more. Buy treats to eat on site or stock up for Valentine’s Day. Plenty of free parking. Admission fee is $2. Children six and under are free.

This family-friendly event features a children’s game room with chocolate-themed games; performances on the Festival Stage by Ukulele Phil and the Hula Kids at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and by accordion player Dave Lovins at 3:30 p.m. Participate in an interactive demonstration of colonial America chocolate-making by American Heritage, a Mars company. All proceeds go to fund local charitable organizations through the McLean Rotary Club Foundation.
