A large crowd gathered at the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District Auditorium Saturday, Feb. 16, ready for a sweet experience. And that’s exactly what they got at a fun annual event centered on chocolate — the Homewood Chocolate Fest.

The fest features artisan chocolatiers and bakeries with treats for sale, a truffle-making demonstration and activities for kids.

 

Chocolate lovers walked away happy from 15th annual Homewood Chocolate Fest

Chocolate lovers had their fill of “sweetastic,” “delicious,” “terrific” treats at Homewood’s 15th annual Chocolate Fest on Saturday, Feb. 18. It didn’t matter if they left the Homewood Auditorium with mouth-watering treats from the dozens of vendors or got in line for samples provided by the chocolate bake-off contestants. The consensus was: It was all good!

Just a reminder ...
