Chocolate Fest

Saturday, February 10 • 1pm - 4pm

​French Lick Springs Hotel • Hoosier Ballroom


Our 10th annual Chocolate Festival will be the cat’s meow as we celebrate in style – 1920’s style!

We are swinging into Valentine’s weekend with familiar traditions and fresh twists on one of French Lick Resort’s longest-standing annual events. Get dolled up in your swankiest 20’s-inspired attire, or come as you are. Either way, we’ll whisk you through a scrumptious spectrum of all things chocolate. Live demonstrations and entertainment are also in this year’s lineup, so have a roarin’ good time and taste to your heart’s content.


Early bird pricing is available from October 1-November 30 and with every Beez Kneez or Easy Peasy early bird ticket purchased, you will be entered to win an overnight stay at French Lick Springs Hotel.




A variety of packages are offered this year:

"Beez Kneez"

If you call yourself a chocolate lover, you need this ultimate package. Beat the chocolate rush with early event access at 12:40 p.m., and enjoy two drink tickets to go with the unlimited chocolate tastings. You’ll receive free entry to the Chocolate Molding Class, which starts at noon. A complimentary photo, large chocolate box and logo gift tote provide a little something extra to commemorate the day. Early-bird pricing (age 21 and over) is $62.

"Easy Peasy"

Along with the all-you-can-eat samplings of our chocolate creations, there’s more accents to this rich experience. The early-bird price of $42 (age 21 and over) includes one drink ticket, so visit the bar and try chocolate with a kick or sample a regular cocktail. A medium chocolate box and logo gift tote are yours to take home. Try the add-on Chocolate Canvas Class at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to see how chocolate and art intertwine.


The older crew (age 13 to 20) can get an education in chocolate that’s a hands-on endeavor. Sample the shapes and textures of all things chocolate, from traditional truffles to quirky creations mixing savory with sweet. A small chocolate box and mini backpack provide you a take-home perk, too. Cash in on the early-bird pricing ($22) by November 30.

"Shimmy" & "Cat's Pajamas"

What kid wouldn’t be captivated by a wonderland of chocolate? Your little shavers age 6 to 12 can sample and nibble the range of sweets for just $12. Don’t worry, Mom – fruit-dipped chocolate is also part of the experience, so they can get their vitamins, too! The “Cat’s Pajamas” package is free for children 5 and younger (4 kids per adult).

Last year’s Chocolate Fest featured 15 different types of chocolate and more than 50 unique chocolate creations. Check out scenes from the 2017 Chocolate Fest in the video below, and you’re sure to see similar sweet sights when you book your Chocolate Fest package for 2018.
