2018 Event Summary

The seventh annual YYC Hot Chocolate Fest was a deliciously successful year! We welcomed over 60 local businesses at more than 100 locations across Calgary, who put their best mug forward and competed for the coveted titles of Calgary’s Best Hot Chocolate & Calgary’s Best Spirited Hot Chocolate. We also recognized one participant with the Cup That Runneth Over Award to recognize their outstanding contribution made to Calgary Meals on Wheels as a result of their participation. Our community stayed thirsty for YYC Hot Chocolates all February long with $1 - $2 from each purchase benefiting Calgary Meals on Wheels! After 28 days of the YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, over 2300 ratings were collected, more than 20,000 hot chocolates sold, and more than $30,000 raised we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 YYC Hot Chocolate Fest!

We Would Like To Thank

All of our participants for their creativity, enthusiasm, and dedication to YYC Hot Chocolate Fest! This event is so successful thanks to the hard work of each team participating; from the creation of the signature hot chocolate, to each staff member promoting and encouraging patrons to purchase. We appreciate all of your efforts in house, and at our sub-events throughout the month. Your creations remind us that hot chocolate can become something extraordinary, and you brought some much-needed sweetness into the dreary month of February for all Calgarians to enjoy! Lastly, we are truly gracious for your generous contributions to Calgary Meals on Wheels as a result of YYC Hot Chocolate Fest. We applaud your investment within your community and are confident we will continue to find ways to build relationships, collaborate and achieve great things together for Calgary!

We'd like to thank our sponsors who helped support this event: McLeod Law and Granary Road.

Last but not least - all of our community members who supported the event through purchasing drinks, participating in events and contests, spreading awareness, and voting online for their favourite hot chocolates! We could not have done it without you!! Your efforts made a difference for Calgarians in need of nutritious and affordable meals – one cup of hot chocolate at a time!

Join us in applauding our winners, all of our amazing participants! Cheers to another amazing YYC Hot Chocolate Fest!
