A Bite-Size Event That’s All About Chocolate
We are excited to announce the Historic Downtown Long Grove Business Association’s (HDLGBA) new bite-size event that’s focused on ALL THINGS CHOCOLATE! We’re planning demos, classes, presentations, experiences, vendors, chocolatiers, entertainment and so much more. Hear about the history of chocolate, how it’s grown, sourced, and made. Learn how to taste craft chocolate correctly. Watch a demo to see how to make chocolate and chocolate treats at home! Our industry experts will be here to entertain, educate, energize, and engage attendees into the wonderful world of chocolate!
Why We’re Calling this a “Bite-Size” Event
The HDLGBA created a smaller, new outdoor rain or shine event (replacing Chocolate Fest) that allows us to experience ALL THINGS CHOCOLATE in a safe way for our attendees, staff and volunteers. Outdoor events are currently required to meet the State of Illinois Phase 4 Reopening Guidelines due to the Covid-10 Pandemic. Attendance must be limited to meet space requirements and ticketing is needed to manage attendance and seating in our gated and/or tent areas.
To ensure we are following these guidelines, you can expect:
- less people than a typical “fest in Long Grove”
- required mask wearing
- social distancing
- seated experiences and time limits for ticketed access
- advanced, online registration is required to attend.
