About the Festival

The 5th Annual Ballston Spa Chocolate Fest takes place Friday, February 2, from 6-9 pm in downtown Ballston Spa. Favorite local restaurants, as well as Chocolate Chefs from across Saratoga County, will showcase their talents by preparing small, sample-sized chocolate offerings in one, some or all of three categories: Sweet Chocolate Desserts, Savory Chocolate Dishes, and Chocolate Beverages. 

These chocolate tastes will be judged by a panel, as well as the public in a fan favorite competition.  Visitors will be able to sample the various chocolate offerings at designated Sweet Spots throughout the Village. Samples are a minimal cost of $1 each.

In addition to Chocolate Fest, there will be a variety of First Friday activities going on in our local businesses, including art gallery openings, live music, artist demonstrations, and special promotions and sales just in time for Valentine's Day.
