Tons of chocolate tastings and workshops land in Dallas on September 8-10 for Dallas Chocolate Festival. We have the secret link to discounted early-bird tickets

Since we already know you are crazy about chocolate, how about spending a weekend feeding your obsession? Circle September 8-10 on your calendar and head here right now to pick up a couple of discounted tickets to the annual Dallas Chocolate Festival. Founder Sander Wolf sends word that this year’s experiential conference (tastings, lectures, demos) is moving from Addison to the The Fashion Industry Gallery (the F.I.G.) in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, which means more space for the festival’s 60 chocolate exhibitors, a Friday night cocktail party and a chocolate cake walk. Bonus: pastry chef and chocolate whiz Zach Townsend will be teaching a pastry course!

Tickets go on sale to the general public on August 10, but if you want to secure yours today, go here and enter the code CAKEWALK to save $5 off general admission tickets for Saturday’s main event. (The discount disappears on August 10.)

Here’s the weekend line-up with descriptions from Sander (each event requires a separate ticket):

Friday, September 8th:  Midway Cocktail Party:  “Like a trip to the chocolate circus with midway games, corn dogs and soft pretzels, cocktails, and chocolate popcorn. The feature will be a Chocolate Cake Walk featuring cakes from local pastry chefs and bakeries. A ticket includes one turn at the cakewalk. (Ages 21 and up.)”

Saturday, September 9th:  Chocolate Festival Main Event. “Come spend the day enjoying the Greatest Chocolate on Earth! Five dozen exhibitors will be sampling and selling all types of chocolate treats: from single source bars to beautiful bon bons and lots of baked goods in between. There will be demos, discussion panels, a kids area, food trucks, free parking, and more. (Fun for the whole family.)”

Sunday, September 10th: Chocolate Workshops. “Learn from the best. Workshops include bean to bar chocolate making, pastry making with Zach Townsend, a history of chocolate tasting, and learning to taste like a judge.”
