Event Details

From vanilla beans to caramel fillings, indulge in it all at the 2011 Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11.

And while it’s a little expensive to actually sample some chocolate ($20 for 15 chocolate samples, which you can purchase in advance), there are also plenty of free events to enjoy like chef demonstrations from chocolatiers, cupcake bakers and mixologists, ice-cream sundae eating contests and live music.

So don’t despair if you can’t get your dark chocolate fix, as there’s plenty to keep you entertained during this weekend of tasty treats, excessive amounts of ice cream and more.
