Calling all chocolate lovers, the Grenada Chocolate Fest 2024 takes place from 15 – 20 May. Founded in 2014 by Magdalena Fielden, the six-day festival continues to grow each year. Whether it’s those wanting to try delicious chocolate or others wishing to learn about the tree-to-bar process, the participation is usually tremendous.

The main reason for its popularity is that the annual Choc Fest is as educational as it is entertaining. Patrons gain insight into Caribbean cocoa, Grenada’s cocoa production, and the manufacture of chocolate-inspired products.

Cocoa estate visits, workshops, chocolate making, and tasting—possibly the most anticipated activity—are also on the event’s agenda. Participants in the festival walk away with a greater appreciation for the chocolate bar-making process and alternative uses for cocoa. 

If you’re looking for things to do in Grenada, Choc Fest 2024, with its schedule of events packed with lots to do, see, and taste, should top your list.
