Lewisburg Chocolate Festival set for Saturday

Posted:

LEWISBURG, W. Va (WVVA)-- The Annual Lewisburg Chocolate Festival comes to town Saturday.

Money raised from the event benefits the United Way of the Greenbrier Valley.

Organizers said Thursday this year's event is the biggest Lewisburg Chocolate Festival to date.

Hundreds of people are expected to come for the festival, bringing not just their appetites but also a business boom into Greenbrier County.

Downtown Lewisburg will offer cooking demonstrations, chocolate tastings, live music, a children's book reading, and more on the big day, and there is something for people of all ages to enjoy.

"We're going to have chocolate everywhere," said Cindy Lavender-Bowe, the chairperson of the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival.

"There's going to be live music and street entertainers, too, from stilt walkers to street performers and balloon twisters."

She added that tickets for chocolate tastings are still available, but after Friday at 10 AM you can no longer order them online.

For a list of where to get tickets at several locations in Downtown Lewisburg, as well as information on tastings and an event schedule, visit the chocolate festival website.
