For immediate release
Kelowna, BC January 15th, 2024 The Okanagan is heating up this January with the third annual Okanagan Hot Chocolate Festival sponsored by Valrhona Chocolate and Foodietown.ca. Being held from January 19th to February 19th, the festival puts an Okanagan twist while taking inspiration from successful Canadian examples in Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal.  “Our food scene has been going through tough times. The fires hurt our tourism in the summer and the struggles continue into the winter months." Murissa, co-founder of the festival laments.

The goal is to have customers relish the talent of the valley with a warm cuppa cocoa in hand while also raising money for the local Central Okanagan Food Bank.

You can donate by visiting OkanaganHotChocolateFest.ca and in person at some of the participating locations.

 A growing list of the Okanagan’s finest cafes, bakeries and chocolate shops are joining the festivities by creating unique and delicious hot chocolate flavours with pairings from their menus. Okanagan greats like Sandrine’s Chocolate & Pastry as well as new businesses like Empire Crepe, Black Sheep Coffee House more will be putting their creativity to the test with a friendly competition and a grand prize provided by participating locations as well as The Energyplex, Foodietown.ca and more.

Winners will be drawn at random after the festival concludes. Guests will also have the opportunity to win prizes with even more ways to win including the beloved colouring contest for all ages, Instagram photo contest and the new passport!
