The Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association and the First Friday business participants are excited to present our Fifth Annual Ballston Spa Chocolate Fest on First Friday, February 2nd, from 6 to 9 pm in downtown Ballston Spa.
We are announcing a call for entries for this popular, family friendly event. Our favorite local restaurants, bakeries, as well as the best Chocolate Chefs from across Saratoga County are all welcome to compete in a chance to showcase their talents by preparing small, sample sized chocolate offerings in one, some or all of 3 categories: Sweet Chocolate Desserts, Savory Chocolate Dishes, and Chocolate Beverages. These chocolate tastes will be judged by a panel, as well as the public in a fan favorite competition. Visitors will be able to sample the variety chocolate offerings at designated Sweet Spots throughout the Village. Samples are a minimal cost of $1. Winning Chocolate Chefs will be awarded with advertising and a trophy to proudly display in their business.
Chocolate Fest Sponsorship opportunities available HERE.
In addition to Chocolate Fest, there will be a variety of First Friday activities going on in our local businesses, including art gallery openings, live music, artist demonstrations, and special promotions and sales just in time for Valentine’s Day.
