The One-of-A-Kind Wisconsin Chocolate Festival is The Sweetest Thing You’ll Ever Do

Burlington is a small town about 30 miles due west of Racine that dubs itself Chocolate City. Nestle, USA has had a production facility in this town for 50 years, so in 1987, the idea to create a chocolate festival was born. Now, on Memorial Day weekend in a park dedicated to the purpose, this four day festival of delicious sweetness is the highlight of the early part of summer in Wisconsin.

Burlington Chocolatefest takes place May 25-28, 2018. At the door, tickets $8 for adults, $5 for children 5-12 years old and free for children younger than 4 years old. It takes place at Burlington Festival Park, 681 Maryland Avenue, Burlington, WI 53105.
