Carolina Chocolate Festival | Eastern North Carolina Now

9th Annual Carolina Chocolate Festival Offers Fun For Everyone

    Prepare to pamper yourself in decadence at the 9th Annual Carolina Chocolate Festival being held at the Crystal Coast Civic Center February 4-6, 2011 at Morehead City.

    Featuring vendors from around the state and beyond, the festival provides lovers of mankind's best-loved desserts - chocolate. From chocolate cakes and tortes to chocolate bars and ice cream, the event offers more than a sampling of everything chocolate. Organizers are putting the finishing touches on other activities that will please everyone this year from cooking demonstrations, to dinners and spa treatments. "The whole family can participate in one or more of the activities we have to offer." says Porter Wilson, President of the Carolina Chocolate Festival. The Chocolate Festival was created by the late John Green, who envisioned non-profit groups working together, hand-in-hand, to organize an event as partners, and in turn reap the benefits.

    All the proceeds from the 2011 Carolina Chocolate Festival will be donated to the Carteret County Domestic Violence, Broad Street Clinic, Second Blessings Outreach, Carteret General Hospital Volunteers, Carteret County 4-H, White Oak Youth, Potters for Parkinson, Beaufort Womens Club and Carteret Community College Basic Law Enforcement Training. This is the ninth Annual Carolina Chocolate Festival at the Crystal Coast Civic Center. In our first 8 years, we have raised over $280,000 to assist 30 deserving charities in Carteret County. We ask that you help make this the most successful year yet.
