Belmont church to host 38th Chocolate Fest Pop-up Shop

in Community

The 38th annual Chocolate Fest Pop-up Shop is taking place at the Congregational Church of Belmont in Belmont on Saturday, Oct. 9.

This year, tickets for the pop-up shop are free, although this year no samples will be offered to attendees due to COVID-19 safety measures. Organizers hope that will change next year.

The pop-up shop will open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Belmont church at 751 Alameda de las Pulgas. Attendees are asked to reserve tickets at its eventbrite listing here.

Can’t make it Saturday? Not a problem, as the event after Saturday will transition to online sales through November, and residents can pick up their online purchases on Fridays at the church located at 751 Alameda de las Pulgas.

All volunteers at the Chocolate Fest Pop-up Shop will be vaccinated and will wear masks.

“Featured this year are both old favorites and newcomers to Chocolate Fest, including 3D Candies, Charlotte Truffles, Cocotutti, Guittard, Jade Chocolates, Javier Confectionery, Ladle & Leaf, NeoCocoa, Preston’s, and The Xocolate Bar,” organizers said.
