Indulge, celebrate and love all things chocolate!

The New Zealand Chocolate Festival returns in July 2018 with even more opportunity for you 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.

This year 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.

We know that moving our popular festival into a week-long format still won’t satisfy the craving that chocolate aficionados desire! So, as a prelude to the main event, the New Zealand Chocolate Festival will be popping up in early July. Our pop-up will feature a truffle making factory, chocolate products and services, hot chocolate drinks, and of course the ever-popular free flowing pleasure of the chocolate fountain.
