Chocolate Festival at Fairchild for the weekend
After sampling delightful treats from dozens of acclaimed chocolatiers, learn how chocolate is produced from the seeds of the cacao plant (Theobroma cacao), an ancient crop from Central and South America. Take a ChocoWalk and stop by the interactive Living History of Cacao and Chocolate Tent to learn from horticulturists, scientists, and chefs about the rich and fascinating history of cacao, this year featuring the chocolate harvesting and production methods of Ecuador. Be sure to visit the Rainforest and Tropical Fruit Pavilion to see how real cacao pods grow on trees. For ultimate relaxation, get pampered at the one-of-a-kind ChocoSpa, or experience the latest fitness craze by joining us at the Allee and Overlook for our Pure Barre Popup Class.
Wrap up your visit by taking home your very own cacao tree or Oncidium “Sharry Baby” chocolate-scented orchid.
