Eureka Springs Chocolate Lovers Festival

January 21st, 2014 by Sam Feldman

It’s almost February! It’s almost time for Valentine’s Weekend! It’s almost time for the Eureka Springs Chocolate Lovers Festival! Always on the Saturday right around Valentine’s Day, this year’s date lands on Saturday, February 15th, 2014, which makes it absolutely perfect for enjoying that romantic weekend to the fullest! (Don’t forget we have a Valentine’s Package available here at the B&B). If you love chocolate (who doesn’t?!!), you have to come indulge. Miles and miles of chocolate:

Eureka Springs Chocolate Lovers Festival

Located at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center, the festival lasts from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for children and that gets you a box to fill up with chocolate – WHILE you’re stuffing your face – as you make the rounds of the tables. Admission goes to benefit local educational organizations.

Come stay with us on Valentine’s Weekend and enjoy a few extra calories!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie & Fiona, too! (who are not allowed to eat chocolate, darn it)

9th Annual Chocolate Lovers’ Festival

January 14th, 2013 by Sam Feldman

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.

chocolateAdmission 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.

But…the best part of the whole thing is… yep, eating chocolate. Mounds and mounds of it. Take Tums with you.

For info on getting tickets, click here. Like them on Facebook for up-to-date info.

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!

Warmest regards,

8th Annual Chocolate Lovers’ Festival in Eureka Springs Arkansas!

January 30th, 2012 by Sam Feldman

Mark your calendar for Saturday, February 11, 2012, for chocolate gorging.

There is chocolate sampling all day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults ($6 for children) and worth every penny, because you get to take a box around with you to all the display tables, chow down on samples AND fill up the box for wonderful chocolate to take home. You will see some wonderful displays (great for ideas for weddings and parties) and one of my favorite things in the whole wide-world:  chocolate fountains.

The Chocolate Lovers’ Festival is always planned every year to coincide with Valentine’s Weekend, so what could be more perfect? This is a nationally acclaimed festival, which has been featured in the national media, including Southern Living magazine. On top of that, it has been selected as the second-best attraction for Valentine’s Day in the state of Arkansas!

A complete world of chocolate appreciation will be featured at the 8th Annual Chocolate Lovers’ Festival including cakes, cookies, ice cream, multiple dipping fountains, beverages and more. Chocolate novelty items and body products will be on hand as well.

We will be happy to host you here at the Bridgeford House Bed and Breakfast in Eureka Springs Arkansas – and we will help you eat the chocolate, too, if you just end up with way too much (is there such a thing?) Weather so far this winter has been gorgeous, so come on up to Eureka! Sophie’s waiting in the window!


Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!


Chocolate Lovers Festival on Valentine’s Weekend!

February 6th, 2010 by Sam Feldman

Come to Eureka Springs for Valentine’s weekend – it’s the only place around where you can gorge yourself totally on chocolate and still take some home with you! The 6th annual Chocolate Lovers Festival is Saturday, February 13th, 2010, at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center, from 9:00 to 3:30. That’s a lot of sinful decadence.

Festival highlights include:  chocolate tasting, dipping fountains, wine, gifts for lovers, souvenir photos & t-shirts, “Best of” chocolate contests, and silent auction of winning entries.

This is what it’s like:  Pay your $10 for your ticket and receive your carrying box, and get in line. You will pass by some of the most delectable, sinful, fattening, luscious, lip smacking chocolate you have ever seen – and you get to just pick it up, stuff it in your box – and stuff it in your mouth! And then you get to go on to the next one! Nobody tells you  that’s enough! It’s only later when you’re reaching for the Tums that you’ll regret it, but at the time – it’s heaven!

See you there!

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!
