The 2019 Dallas Chocolate Festival Is Coming Up

Get ready to indulge.

The Dallas Chocolate Festival is now in its tenth year. What was once a tiny, upstart operation now takes over the F.I.G. building, filling it with dozens of chocolatiers and obsessive crafters of boutique bean-to-bar creations—the best from around the nation. Our own Five Mile Chocolate, Coco André, Kate Weiser, and others join both industry trailblazers and up-and-coming lodestars. You can geek out about single-origin Madagascar beans, make your own chocolate bar start to finish, or wander the aisles, sniffing the aroma from chocolate fountains.

The festival runs Sept. 6 to 8 at the F.I.G. this year. (Tickets will go on sale here on August 1.)

The new thing this year: a 10th anniversary dinner at the Fairmont Hotel. (Tickets go on sale here July 15.)

Details from the press release:

10th Anniversary Dinner
Saturday, Aug. 17, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Venetian Ballroom at The Fairmont Hotel – 1717 N Akard St., Dallas
Tickets are $150 per person (21+ only). Gratuity included. (Tickets will go on sale July 15.)

In commemoration of DallasChocolate.org’s premiere event 10 years ago – a dinner featuring two craft chocolate makers – the Dallas Chocolate Festival and the Fairmont Dallas present a special 10th Anniversary Dinner to be held in the newly renovated Venetian Ballroom at The Fairmont. Fairmont Executive Chef Jared Harms and Pastry Chef Cristal Gonzalez will create a five-course dinner with each dish incorporating fine chocolate and paired with wine or a cocktail. Legends of the American chocolate movement – Art Pollard of Amano Artisan Chocolate, Greg D’Alesandre of Dandelion Chocolate, Jael Rattigan of French Broad Chocolate, and Shannon Neffendorf and Jessica Young of Five Mile Chocolate – will be on hand to tell their stories of chocolate.

Also, of note: DallasChocolate.org funds scholarships for students attending culinary programs at El Centro Community College and Collin College. To date, the organization has donated over $25,000.
