Chocolate Festival

The happiest event in the North opens its doors again at the North Peace Cultural Centre on February 11th at 6:00. For the price of a ticket, $20 per adult, $10 per child or $45 for a family of four, patrons have the opportunity to taste many deliciously decadent chocolate confections donated by home and commercial bakers.

To enter, bakers are asked to contribute two identical items, i.e. two batches of fudge or selections in one of the other five categories.  One will be wrapped in clear cellophane by volunteers and displayed beautifully for the Live Auction and the other will be cut up (by volunteers) into tiny “tasters” for the judges and patrons of the event.  In accordance with food safe regulations, nothing that requires refrigeration can be accepted.

Winners of each category (Cookies, Candy (Boutique), Squares, Cakes,  Kid’s, and Commercial) will receive a blue ribbon, recognition at the event, in the media and on the North Peace Cultural Centre website as well as free admittance to next year’s event.

Bakers are asked to confirm their participation with a call to North Peace Cultural Centre, (250) 785-1992, before February 3rd.  Delivery of baked donations will take place at the NPCC foyer on Saturday, February 11th between 10:00 a.m. and noon  At the time of drop-off, please indicate whether your recipe contains nuts.  In accordance with foodsafe regulations, nothing that requires refrigeration (including whipped cream) can be accepted.

We are also looking for volunteers to help at the North Peace Cultural Centre on the day of the Festival with the cutting up of tasters and the receiving of donations.  If you can help on this busy day, please let us know.

Proceeds from the Chocolate Festival support Arts programming at the North Peace Cultural Centre, including Creative Kids After School Program, Let’s Art free art class, and more.

Thank you to everyone that has supported this event in the past and for participating this year.
