Chocolatefest Knoxville

A portion of the net proceeds will be donated to Knoxville's Ronald McDonald House! 


We only allow 20 chocolate vendors each year.  These businesses are amazing and we are proud to work with them in supporting Ronald McDonald House! 

2017 Chocolate Vendors

It's a truly sweet event!  Chocolate specialists from across East Tennessee will be at the Knoxville Convention Center in beautiful Downtown Knoxville offering samples of their tasty treats!   A portion of the net proceeds are donated to Knoxville's Ronald McDonald House!  

General Admission into Chocolatefest is $5.00 for age 6 & up!  Your general admission admits you into the festival to walk around, browse the vendor booths, enjoy the music and activities! Live music, a children's area, a photo booth, the silent auction, a cake design show, a chocolART exhibit and tons of shopping at our vendor booths!  You may purchase your admission at the door or in advance online.  

To taste the chocolate you will need a tasting pass.  You may decide to purchase one for your family to share, or multiple.  We leave that up to you!  There are only 1500 tasting passes so get them early!  

The Chocolate Tasting Pass is $20.00.   You can purchase online or at the door.  Your General Admission is included in your tasting pass purchase.  You do not need to purchase a $5.00 admission ticket for yourself.  When you check-in, you will receive the official tasting pass and a box to carry your sweets!  Your tasting pass gets you admitted into the special chocolate tasting area at chocolatefest.  No one will be admitted into the Chocolate Tasting area without a Tasting Pass.  No strollers permitted.  We will provide stroller parking near the tasting area. 

The Chocolate VIP Pass is $50.00.  This pass grants you admission at 9am (one hour before the event opens to the public).  Your General Admission into Chocolatefest is included with your VIP ticket.  You will receive the VIP treatment from 9am-11am with a seat at a beautiful table to enjoy the live entertainment and have your chocolate hand delivered to you on a plate by our chocolatefest waiters!  You may walk around Chocolatefest for as long as you like after that!  

Make sure you stop by and vote for your favorite work of art in our ChocolART exhibit and the Cake Design Competition!
