Belmont’s annual Chocolate Festival will be held on Oct. 5 and 6 at the Congregational Church of Belmont.

The CCB will host the festival at their church on 751 Alameda de las Pulgas. This will be the CCB’s 30th annual festival and will feature 20 local vendors, including quite a few from Belmont. Entertainment will include the Michael Medwid Jazz Trio, who will be performing throughout the festival.

The festival is broken up into three sessions, the first will be on Friday Oct. 5 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. and the second and third will be on Saturday Oct. 6 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. and 7:30 to 10 p.m. Pre-sale tickets are being sold at the CCB’s website, afternoon tickets are $17.50 and evening tickets are $22.50. Tickets at the door cost $20 in the afternoon and $25 in the evening. Tickets include unlimited samplings of all the chocolate treats.

According to the CCB, the proceeds from the festival come back and benefit the community. This will include local outreach projects including the Samaritan House, Second Harvest Food Bank, and the Interfaith Hospitality Network, as well as the preservation of the church.

Belmont businesses like A-Lot-A Gelato, Cafe Mossant, and Jade Chocolates will be represented at the festival. The featured businesses will be offering samples of chocolate gelato, baked goods, and candy.

Carlmont sophomore Samantha Fong has never been to the festival before, but plans to attend after hearing about all the different chocolates. “I’m just so excited because there will be so much chocolate and it’s just fantastic.”

Although the chocolate festival offers a variety of chocolate, it is still difficult to pick a single favorite.

Senior Virginia O’Callahan has attended and worked at the festival for two years and couldn’t pick only one favorite. “Everything is so good. It’s chocolate, who doesn’t love chocolate?”
