Chocolate purveyors from around the country gather together in Glendale to create an annual festival of chocolate delights. The award-winning event is a celebration of not only chocolate but the arts and romance as well. Among the festival’s most unique eats and attractions are chocolate covered bacon and chocolate twinkies available to munch on while being wooed by a Romance novel cover model, trying your hand at some Plein Air painting or enjoying other activities, geared toward families and young children, including face painting and horse-drawn carriage rides. Sponsored by Cerreta Fine Chocolates, the Cerreta’s factory will be open and offering tours all weekend. This year’s Glendale Chocolate Affaire has food and fun for everyone during February 3-5, 2012.
