Traverse City Chocolate Festival

Sending thanks again to all those who attended the TC Chocolate Festival last Sunday. We read and consider ALL of your comments. Some things we can change, some are locked in unless we change the whole structure of the festival, which is unlikely. If we did make major changes, everything - tickets included - would have to get more expensive. And holding prices down has always been a prime goal.

Always looking towards next year, I will post the TENTATIVE date for next year: Sunday, April 15, 2018.

Eat lots of chocolate and keep sending me your "finds". Happy summer. "The Chocolate Lady"
