Chocolate Festival

Get ready to immerse yourself in a world of craft chocolate this winter.

The first-ever Chocstock Festival will be taking place in Wellington this July. Two of New Zealand’s best craft producers, Wellington Chocolate Factory and retailer The Chocolate Bar, have joined forces to bring you this chocolate-based wonderland.

On July 3, prepare to indulge on everything chocolate at this epic one-day festival. It is both a tasting and educational experience where you can learn about the bean-to-bar chocolate-making process, while sipping chocolate-infused beers and chowing down on some unique chocolate pizza.

Excitingly, the itinerary involves eight one-hour sessions so attendees can personally meet the makers while tasting and learning about their craft chocolates. Wonderfully, all attendees get to take home complimentary bars of award-winning chocolate.

As mentioned already, you’ll be able to devour exclusive mouth-watering chocolate pizzas from Pomodoro, scrumptious craft chocolate desserts from Shepherd and chocolate-based beers from Golding’s Free Dive. Chocoholics are you ready for this?
