It’s time for all chocolate lovers to unite! February is a great time to visit Eureka Springs and Saturday, February 9th, would be a great day to pick. The 9th Annual Chocolate Lovers Festival will take place at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Admission is $12 for adults and is well worth the price. Items for sampling (and taking home in your little box included in the price of the ticket) include cakes, cookies, ice cream, multiple dipping fountains, beverages and my personal favorite, chocolate covered strawberries! And much, much more.
There will be judging for the Best Decorated Cake, Best Dessert and Best Candy for professionals and other categories such as Best Decorated Cake and Most Creative Dessert for amateurs. There is even a Amateur Youth Division.
But…the best part of the whole thing is… yep, eating chocolate. Mounds and mounds of it. Take Tums with you.
And, yes, technically you can walk to this one from our inn, but you may not be able to walk home. There is plenty of parking at the convention center, for free! And if you can’t make it to Eureka for that weekend but want to celebrate Valentine’s with your loved one, don’t forget we are running a 3-day special here at Bridgeford House: book the 14th, 15th, and 16th (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) and receive the 3rd night free AND your own little box of local chocolates AND a free wine tasting at Keel’s Creek Winery. Either weekend is SWEET!
