MOSI Hosting Festival of Chocolate in January MOSI Hosting Festival of Chocolate in January

MOSI will host Tampa’s third annual Festival of Chocolate from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Jan. 19 and 20, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Jan. 21. The Festival of Chocolate is Florida’s largest all-chocolate tasting, shopping and interactive experience.

The Festival of Chocolate will showcase a variety of the area's best chocolate and confection companies, selling tastes and treats of everything chocolate from truffles, cakes and cupcakes to cookies, brownies and ice creams.

For the littlest chocoholics, Kids-4-Chocolate is the perfect place for children to create, play and adventure all in the name of chocolate. And, of course, education is key at MOSI, so Tampa Bay area families can learn about the Health, History and Science of Chocolate.

Award-winning pastry chefs and chocolatiers will host interactive demonstrations, sharing techniques, and tricks of the trade. And a live wedding cake competition will give breathtaking artistic sculptures a tasty twist. 

Here's the details:
