Indulge, celebrate and love all things chocolate!

The New Zealand Chocolate Festival is your opportunity to indulge in all things chocolate!

This festival presents the best New Zealand has to offer in chocolate inspired creations, products and experiences.

Chocolatiers from all over New Zealand come together in a single location to showcase their unique products in our Chocolates of New Zealand exhibition. We have everything you can imagine, from traditional classics to seriously exotic combinations.

You’ll have the opportunity to see passionate chefs and experts share their tricks of the trade, as they demonstrate their culinary skills working the humble cacao bean into surprising and impressive dishes.

The festival further embraces the vast culinary range of chocolate by offering a series of ticketed events across an entire week in various Wellington locations. These tailor-made events range from complex technique classes through to pure feel-good indulgence.
