Chocolate City STRONG!

ChocolateFest CANCELLED for May 22-25th 2020!

It is with deep regret and sadness that the ChocolateFest Executive Committee has made the decision to postpone ChocolateFest for what would have been its 34th event.

Due to the national coronavirus pandemic, keeping the public safe is our first priority.  Our committee members have been working diligently to produce another great event, but given the recent closures and gathering limits, we have been forced to this unfortunate decision.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and disappointment caused, but this is far beyond our control.

our story

about ChocolateFest


Since 1987 we have been hosting a chocolate carnival celebration in Chocolate City U.S.A.! Rides, food, entertainment, and tons of chocolate!

fun for the entire family!

Chocolate makes people happy


In 1985 Bill Branen, Jack Berry, and Dave Wright of the Burlington Standard Press along with Henry Spreaha and Henk Hasert of Nestle, Mayor Marty Itzin and the Burlington Area Chamber of Commerce, brainstormed a way to draw tourists to Burlington and to celebrate Nestle”s 20th anniversary of doing business in Burlington. They capitalized upon the idea that most people love chocolate! With Nestle”s help, they planned and marketed a Chocolate Festival and gave Burlington the nickname of “Chocolate City U.S.A.”.
