Lewisburg WV Chocolate Festival

The Lewisburg Chocolate Festival brings together some of our favorite things in life—music, shopping, good times and chocolate! Dating back to 2006, this Lewisburg West Virginia event has grown from offering 5,000 tastings to 35,000 in just 10 years.

Today 40 chocolate vendors from around the country share their chocolate delicacies while celebrity chefs demonstrate some exciting desserts and dishes.  And that's not all! The event also features a mousse eating competition, the Chocolate Chase 10K Race, the All Things Chocolate Bake-Off, and chocolate themed children’s activities.

The event was honored to receive the Mountaineer Award by the WV Division of Tourism and named one of the Top 20 Events of Spring by the Southeast Tourism Society.

Part of the charm of the festival is definitely its location. Beautiful, historic downtown Lewisburg is one of the premiere tourist destinations on the East Coast. The walkable picturesque downtown features more than 40 independent shops and restaurants all in a National Register Historic District. The area has been featured in a number of national magazines and newspapers and in 2011 was named the Coolest Small Town in America by Budget Travel magazine. It was the only West Virginia town to receive this top honor.
