Creede’s 27th Chocolate Festival! Nov. 25th & 26th from 11- 4pm. Yes, chocolate! Tickets are limited, buy early at Creede.com. Eat, shop the stores and vote for your favorite chocolate creation!
The Creede Chocolate Festival is an annual two-day event beginning the Friday & Saturday after Thanksgiving. This event showcases luscious samples of chocolate specialties created by local business owners and individuals. All participants must abide by a few simple regulations concerning their chocolate delicacies: samples must contain chocolate, carob, cocoa, or white chocolate and cannot be commercially made or prepared from a box. Wonderful, yet sometimes unusual, chocolate delights range from tiramisu, tortes and chocolate covered pretzels, to jalapeno bean fudge and chocolate dipped bacon. Eating your way down Main Street will be easy—but casting your vote for the People’s Choice award can be challenging!
Often, Santa and Mrs. Claus can be found around town! The Creede Repertory Theatre performs their improv show Boomtown in the Ruth Theatre (www.creederep.org) and live music can often be found in the late afternoon and evening. Many of Creede’s businesses will also be holding sales and offering specials during the festival weekend. Several businesses will be open for Black Friday Shopping, offering deep discounts from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m.
