Greater Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival to return next week for 2022 run

Jan 8 2022, 12:43 am

It might have a new, slightly different name, but our local festival of all things hot chocolate is about to officially kick off just like it does every winter.

The Greater Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival (formerly known as the Hot Chocolate Fest) is making a sweet return from January 15 to February 14, 2022.

The name change signals new participating neighbourhoods and municipalities. The 2022 festival features makers outside of Vancouver located in North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey, Richmond, White Rock, and even Whistler.

This year, the annual celebration of sweetness has over 40 vendors with 67 participating locations you can head to in order to get in on one of the 106 different hot chocolate flavours up for order.

Just like in previous years, customers can expect to enjoy dozens and dozens of special, limited-edition sips from local purveyors.
