YYC Hot Chocolate Fest

YYC Hot Chocolate Fest

February 1 to 28

The 7th annual YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is back starting February  1st. Participating cafes and restaurants around Calgary will be serving signature hot chocolate recipes and YOU get to vote for your favourite!

Drinking hot chocolate around the city isn’t the only good thing about this festival, the best part is that proceeds from the purchase of hot chocolate are donated to the Calgary Meals on Wheels.
