Alabama Chocolate Festival

April 05, 2014

The Alabama Chocolate Festival will be held at the Rainbow Plaza Shopping Center (3225 Rainbow Drive) and will be celebrating our 9th year! There will be arts and crafts vendors along with a great variety of food vendors. A Chocolate Taste-Off will take place for anyone willing to bring their baked/prepared item to be judged for a cash prize. Samples will be available to everyone after judging takes place. There will be a chocolate chug-a-lug for participants to chug as much chocolate milk in a minute for cash prizes. An egg toss is a great game for teams of 13-years and up, 12 and under, and families. Entertainment begins at 1 p.m. with something for everyone to enjoy. The headliner starts at 6:30 p.m. A 6-foot chocolate fountain is free to anyone wanting to come and dip their favorite treat! The ever popular Treasure Chest winner will be announced on stage at 4:30. The Treasure Chest event starts taking place about 4 weeks before the festival. A certificate is hidden somewhere in the city limits of Rainbow City and a clue is released each Thursday until the treasure is found. The chest is worth approximately $4,000 in cash and prizes! We recommend bringing your lawn chair, a sweet tooth for free chocolate and enjoy the day.
