Chocolate Lovers' Fundraiser II

This chocolate extravaganza began at Norman's Firehouse Art Center but has expanded to a larger location. Some of the chefs and chocolatiers have learned that their public likes a particular item so a few make only that "signature" confection. In your community, you could feature another flavor or even versions of some agricultural product important to your area.

The Chocolate Festival is the Firehouse Art Center's only annual fundraiser and membership drive. All proceeds from the annual Chocolate Festival help support children's arts education, exhibits, and programs, such as Art Education in Schools, offered to the community by the Firehouse Art Center.   (vimeo video promo below)
  • Benefits the Norman Firehouse Art Center
  • FAC's only fundraiser
  • $25-35 tickets (member, non-member pricing)
  • About 40 "juried" vendors participate
  • A premier, one-hour tasting session in 2010 included 15 chocolate samples, a container to take home leftovers and a complimentary drink
  • Kid-friendly art activities
  • Attendance around 3,000
