Nov 1 2017, 1:10 am

The Luxury Chocolate Festival takes over the Toronto Reference Library this weekend.

The kick-off to a month-long celebration of all things chocolate takes place over two days and promises a full weekend of chocolate-themed activities.

Here are the vendors and attractions we’re most looking forward to.

1. There’s a chocolate marketplace

Forget farmers and fleas. This market is stocked with stuff we really want: chocolate! More than 30 chocolate artists from near and far will hawk their chocolatey wares at this cacao-fueled festival!

Participating vendors include:

2. Chocolate making demos


With the holidays just around the corner, it couldn’t hurt to brush up on your skills in the kitchen. Top chocolatiers and chefs take to this stage for hourly demonstrations covering chocolate making, infusions, and more.

3. Chocolate Salons

Chocolate and wine! This hourly tasting salon isn’t included in the price of admission, but for $18 festival-goers can enjoy a 40-minute sampling featuring up to six wines paired with chocolates.

4. Free draws
