When it launched in 2011, The Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival was the first city-wide festival of its kind in the world. This January it returns for its 9th year, bigger and better than ever, with Vancouver’s best chocolatiers, pastry shops, bakeries, cafes, gelato and ice cream makers coming together to make the humble hot chocolate hotter than it has ever been before. In the damp and gloomy days of our Westcoast winter, you’ll find our motto to be true: “Hot Chocolate Makes You Happy!”
This year our very own BjornBar Bakery is included in the deliciousness. Visit the village between January 19 – February 14 to indulge in this fabulous event!
The Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival is a branded event of CityFood Events.
In 2019, partial funds from the proceeds of the Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival will be shared with three charitable organizations – all of which seek to improve the lives of women and families in Vancouver. For more information click here.
