Historic Downtown Long Grove’s quintessential festival kicks off the season each year with three days dedicated to old-world charms, family frills and delicious chocolate. Only at Chocolate Fest do life’s most delectable cravings come together with live music to conjure up a time bygone. It’s where children roam the village in search of chocolate treasures (during the Chocolate Scavenger Hunt) while parents zig zag after them in and out of boutiques hunting for their own hidden gems. It’s where local vendors dot cobble-stone streets wheeling out chocolate-infused creations, everything from chocolate pudding pie pops to burgers with chocolate sauce.
Admission: Adults are $5 at the door, kids 12 and under are free. 3 day passes are sold for $10 if bought online.
