Indulge the mind and the senses at the Sixth Annual Chocolate Fest and Book Faire held in the historic downtown Martinsburg on April 26-27.
Experience a chocolate extravaganza held in downtown Martinsburg… taste some wonderful chocolate, indulge yourself in an array of chocolate creations throughout the businesses in downtown Martinsburg, explore the unique shops and speak with West Virginia authors. The festival features local and out of state authors signing their books within the businesses, and participating businesses each preparing a different chocolate item for you to enjoy on the Chocolate Walk. DeFluri’s Fine Chocolates, a local chocolatier, will offer tours of its 10,000 square foot factory, plus host a wine pairing on Friday Night.
An annual favorite, the cupcake competition offers a prize of $500 for the very best cupcake creation. The cupcakes are judged on flavor as well as presentation.
Application deadlines for authors who want to participate in the book faire are due April 5.
The Chocolate Cupcake Contest will take place Saturday, April 27 at the Martinsburg Public Library. Applications are due by April 19.
More information on the event, and the applications for authors and cupcake bakers can be found at the Main Street Martinsburg website.
