Choctoberfest Coming to Colorado This Fall
If you or someone you know is a chocolate lover, you'll probably find them (or lose them) at Choctoberfest.
Over 70 vendors will show up at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 15, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the third annual Choctoberfest to show off truffles, chocotinis, brownies, fudge, candy, liquor, cupcakes, coffee, and everything chocolate. Engaged couples in attendance will also get to check out restaurants, caterers, and other chocolate-related vendors that might be the perfect chocolate fix for their wedding.
Choctoberfest will also feature beer and wine pairings, the Chocolatier Championships, kids' activities, chocolate pudding eating contest, face painting, Halloween costume contest, pre-holiday gift shopping, aerial chocolate apple bobbing contest, and more.
General admission costs $5 with taste and VIP tickets available online. If you're looking for discounts, check out Groupon for deals. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Action Center to benefit families in need.
The Arapahoe County Fairgrounds are located at 25690 E Quincy Avenue in Aurora, Colorado. Parking for Choctoberfest is free.
