Silver City’s 2023 Chocolate Fantasia, The Chocolate Factory
|Saturday, February 11, 2023, 11:00am - 04:00pm
Silver City, NM – January 4, 2023 – The Mimbres Region Arts Council presents Chocolate Fantasia on Saturday, February 11, 2023, from 11am to 4pm. It is coming back with some changes that will keep public health a priority, and create a new experience for the community and business owners.
All the chocolates will be served at one main downtown site called The Chocolate Factory located at The Hub Plaza, 601 N. Bullard Street. This will allow quality and health standards to be more efficiently monitored.
There will be a new fun activity called “The Golden Ticket.” Businesses will have chocolate bars, some with golden tickets, to sell to people wanting to try their luck to get a Golden Ticket which can be redeemed at The Chocolate Factory for prizes valued at $50. To add to the excitement “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” will be shown at the Silco! And there will be costumed characters and music throughout the town.
Tasting tickets for $25 are on sale now. Proceeds from the event benefit the programs of the Mimbres Region Arts Council. “Silver City has its own unique charm. Add in gourmet, handmade chocolate confections, and you’ll see why February is a sweet time to come visit,” said Gretchen Lopez, Event Coordinator. “This event is one of our most anticipated annual events. We encourage those interested in attending to purchase tickets early as the event sells out each year.”
Ticket holders can cast their People’s Choice votes for best chocolates, best costumes, best music, and best business decorations on the back of their tasting tickets, and turn in their tickets by 3 pm at the Chocolate Fantasia Factory. Awards will be given out at the closing ceremonies at 4:30 PM.
