The Oregon Chocolate Festival takes place in the springtime every year in Ashland, this year the Festival will take place on the weekend of March 6th and March 8th 2015.

For lovers of all things chocolate like me, this is a must visit event. There will be many chocolatier’s you may recognize including Dagoba, Lillie Belle Farms, Sipping Dreams and many many more.  Try some unique combinations and unexpected concoctions, cakes, cocktails, beer and even a chocolate facial.

The event takes place at the Ashland Springs Hotel, if you would like to stay at a B&B the Blue Moon is a 10 minute walk from the venue, where you will find a warm welcome and a home away from home cozy atmosphere, and also our yummy chocolate desserts. While you are here in Ashland see a play or two at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Theatres just 2 blocks from the Festival.
