About the Event

What is the YYC Hot Chocolate Fest?

YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is a delicious and friendly competition to see who makes the best hot chocolate in Calgary. And the best part is, all the yummy goodness supports a wonderful cause. A portion of the proceeds from each drink are donated to support the clients and programs of Calgary Meals on Wheels.

Throughout the month of February, participating cafes, restaurants, and chocolatiers feature signature hot chocolate drinks created especially for this competition. Customer online votes will decide which vendor will win the coveted title of Calgary’s “Best Hot Chocolate” and there’s a spirited category too! We also award the vendor with “Most Funds Raised” because we think being generous is super important.

The fest started in 2012, so we are super excited to be celebrating the 5th annual event in 2016!

The YYC Hot Chocolate Fest Launch was a great success. Thank You to the over 1100 people that visited the Calgary Farmers’ Market on Saturday and a very special thanks to those who sampled the delicious hot chocolates provided by ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen, Blenz The Canadian Coffee Company, Kaffeeklatsch, Analog Coffee, TotaliTea, the Tea Boutique and The Bean Stop
Also thank you to all of the people taking part of the festival all month long. A portion of the proceeds of all the drinks sold are donated to support the clients and programs of Calgary Meals on Wheels.

Try a drink or try them all! Grab your friends and family, and enjoy YYC Hot Chocolate Fest!
