Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival

Now in its fourth year, the festival is presented by CityFood Magazine and will run from January 18th until February 14th, 2014. A full list of participating cafes and bakeries will be posted later this week but a teaser video released a few days ago has a few hints.

There’s Australian black liquorice and organic dark chocolate ganache from GEM Chocolates; a blend of cinnamon, star anise, cloves, fennel and peppers with dark chocolate from Soirette Macarons & Tea; hibiscus, Barry Callebaut white chocolate and a mountain berry marshmallow, from Terra Breads; banana bread, banana liquor, Michel Cluizel dark chocolate, and banana bread gelato in hot chocolate from Bella Gelateria and much more!

The entire event is a fundraiser for the Downtown Eastside women’s job skills program of the PHS Community Services Society + EastVan Roasters. Follow CityFood Magazine on Facebook for Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival updates.

    Hi Rebecca!

    We would love to participate in the hot chocolate festival if you are still accepting entries please let me know! If we can’t enter this year maybe we could have a head start for next year!
    Especially being a cafe located in the downtown east side we would love to help fundraising for our community.

    Let me know any details,

    Thank you so much,

    Love this! So much fun. I am wondering where to find out what the specialty hot chocolates are. Been cruising google, only to find dead links to the locations, and even when I get to the locations… I find little information about the festival. Is there a one best place to get all the information?
