The chocolate is coming! The chocolate is coming! The 12th annual Chocolate on the Beach Festival is coming to Pacific Beach February 21 – 24, 2019, featuring a Sci-Fi theme of Out of this World Chocolate.
The small coastal community of Pacific Beach has been the home of the Chocolate on the Beach Festival for over eleven years, beginning in 2008. What started out as a small fundraiser for The Museum of the North Beach grew by 2012 into a HUGE event for the sister communities of Moclips, Aloha, Copalis Crossing, Seabrook, Copalis Beach and Ocean City and is now a four day event and over 13 miles long!
The Chocolate on the Beach Festival supports organizations and groups in the North Beach area with grants and donations for historical, educational and community projects. This year, $6,000.00 in grant funds and auction baskets were given, making a grand total of over $41,000 donated back to our community since they became their own entity seven years ago.
According to their website, this is a fun, family festival offering something for every chocolate lover! There are chocolate vendors, artists, and crafters. You can attend a cooking class or enter your favorite recipe in the recipe contest. How about entering a chocolate eating contest? You can do all this and so much more. Attendees will find chocolate that is gluten free, dairy free, vegan, organic, fair trade, and even chocolate themed crafts!
