The concept of a community chocolate festival began with a dream shared between the creative and motivated individuals in Montrose to offer a new weekend event. During 2007, several Susquehanna County wineries began to present chocolate truffles by Chocolates By Leopold flavored by their best wines. This classic pairing of chocolate and wine encouraged the inclusion of wine in the festival.
Festival guests will have the unique experience of tasting chocolate and wine, patronizing vendors and local businesses, participating in a Cupcake War and so much more!
We are currently looking for area businesses and individuals to help sponsor our annual festival. Donations and sponsorship provided by community members will assist the committee with planning events such live music, chocolate demonstrations, as well as securing advertising, the production of festival t-shirts, and production of complimentary festival wine glasses. Proceeds from the ticket sales, as well as donations, will be presented to various Montrose community projects. In order to achieve these goals and exceed expectations, we are requesting your support.
