Important! We appreciate your support for the Big Island Chocolate Festival as a chef/chocolatier participant. The Hawaii Health Department requires that each participant fills out a health and sanitation form to include a booth layout form showing the hand washing area and how the food service will appear. The organizers will pay for your $25 application fee. Please print out the County form AND the booth layout pdf, complete both of them and fax them back to 808-324-6200 by March 1, 2013. Thank you for taking time to do this so our event runs smoothly and legally.
The Fairmont Orchid is offering discounted room rates of only $249 which includes breakfast. Offer is limited based on supply. Call (800) 992-2694 to make a reservation and make sure to mention the chocolate festival to get the special reduced rate.
