Chocolate Lovers Unite!

Don’t miss San Diego Botanic Garden’s annual Chocolate Festival on Saturday, May 11 from 10 am – 4 pm. Your taste buds will thank you when savoring the wide variety of goodies created by local chocolate artisans.

The Chocolate Festival is the day before Mother’s Day, so it makes a perfect gift for Mom. Come and enjoy the day relaxing in our beautiful garden oasis while sampling edibles made from the ground beans of the Theobroma cacao. Demonstrations and tips on creating delicious chocolate treats will also be featured at the Chocolate Festival.

Pick up the perfect Mother’s Day gift from one of our vendors or from the Garden’s Gift Shop featuring plants, jewelry, photography, specialty chocolate flavored soaps and unique garden-themed items every Mom loves!

Cost: Entrance to the Chocolate Festival is included with paid admission or SDBG membership.
