ASHLAND, Ore.– Tonight kicks off this weekend’s 10th Annual Oregon Chocolate Festival at the Ashland Springs Hotel. A chocolatier from Lillie Belle Farms in Central Point is putting his artwork on display of a chocolate sculpture of an electric guitar. All weekend long local chocolate makers will be offering chef demonstrations, samples and some of the Oregon’s top quality chocolate.
Event organizers say hundreds of people have already bought tickets for the event and they expect more to come. Next year they expect the event to be even bigger bringing in chocolatiers from California and Washington. Local businesses hope to cash in on the foot traffic this event brings to the city of Medford as dozen of businesses are offering discounts to festival goers.
The 10th Annual Oregon Chocolate Festival all starts Saturday at 11 a.m. and tickets are $20 per person.
