The Fifth Annual Big Island Chocolate Festival Gala, being held from 5:30-9 pm on Saturday May 14th, blends three events into one decadent evening! A professional food competition judged by celebrity chefs, a fundraiser to benefit the Kona Kohala Chef’s Association scholarship program for local culinary college students and enrichment programs for the Kona Pacific Public Charter School, and a fabulous evening of sweet and savory chocolate tastings, wine tasting, live music and dancing.
This year we debut a new venue, with the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel offering fantastic room rates and an indoor/outdoor space for the Gala evening. Every ticket also includes an all-you-can-enjoy Mole and salad bar and Bacardi drink station. VIP tickets include a fine wine bar, dedicated seating, and first entry into the event at 5 pm.
