Everybody knows that Eureka Springs is for lovers and that we have some great chocolate shops here! But how about a WHOLE WEEKEND of chocolate? Our annual Chocolate Lover’s Festival coincides with Valentine’s weekend and it is a gastronomical delight. Tickets are $10 per person and allows you to sample all the chocolate goodies your stomach can possibly hold, plus pack some to take home. You will experience everything from chocolate fountains, brownies, candies and cookies to chocolate drinks and chocolate body care products! There is always chocolate dipped strawberries, which is one of my personal favorites. (Check out and LIKE their Facebook page to keep up-to-date on all the details.)
This year the weekend will include a seminar on chocolate on Friday, the 11th, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Seminar will be made up of four sessions: The History of Chocolate; The Health Benefits of Chocolate; Cooking with Chocolate and The pairing of Wine and Chocolate. Lunch will be served.
There will also be a St. Valentine’s Day ball on Saturday evening, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., all at the Convention Center. Reservations need to be made by February 08 for the seminar and February 09 for the Ball. Call 888-465-4753 for more information.
Check with us on rooms here at the Bridgeford House; we do have a few left but don’t expect them to last long! Meanwhile, take a look at Eureka’s Year at a Glance calendar for all the exciting things coming up in 2011!
