Long Grove Chocolate Fest

By: Jonathan Jones 05/06/2013

The first weekend in May has rolled around, and guess what that means?  It’s time for the Long Grove Chocolate Fest again!  Chocolate Fest is a family-friendly opportunity to taste various types of chocolates, visit art galleries and other shops in Long Grove’s unique business district, and listen to live music throughout the day.

Chocolate Fest began on Friday, May 3, and ran through Sunday, May 6.  Admission is $5 per person, and children under 12 years are free.  With the $5 admission, guests receive a $5 coupon off their next visit to Long Grove on behalf of the Long Grove Business and Community Partners Organization.  In addition, guests can purchase a $5 chocolate tasting ticket that allows them to choose six different items to taste from vendors across the festival.  Visitors snacked on delectable goodies throughout the day, including chocolate BBQ bacon burgers, chocolate-covered cannoli, chocolate martinis, chocolate baklava, chocolate balsamic vinegar, and chocolate chip cookie dough lattes.  Yum!

The business district of Long Grove is located at Old McHenry Road and Robert Parker

Coffin Road, north of Route 53 and west of Route 83.  A map of the shopping area is available here.  For more information about the Long Grove Chocolate Fest, please call the Visitor’s Information Center at (847) 634-0888.
