Big Island Chocolate Festival Hosts New Dip, Sip And Paint Events
Get ready, chocolate lovers. The Big Island Chocolate Festival has a new event that is sure to not just tickle your taste-buds but get your creative juices flowing.
The festival’s inaugural Dip, Sip and Paint events are scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 13, at Island Lave Java in Coconut Grove Marketplace in Kailua Village. There are two sessions from which to choose: 3-5 p.m. or 7-9 p.m., with the events outdoors, but under roof.
“We’re adding a decadent ‘dip’ to all you’d expect at a Paint and Sip event,” Big Island Chocolate Festival chairperson Stephanie Beeby said in a press release.
The fun will include painting, unlimited wine or two mocktails, pupus by Lava Java and delicious treats to dip in a chocolate fountain sponsored by the Cocoa Outlet.
Admission is $65 for each session and proceeds benefit the nonprofit Kona Cacao Association and its support of the island’s cacao and chocolate industry. Table specials also are available for parties of four.
For more information, call 808-201-2000.
The mission and goal of Kona Cacao Association is to promote the cacao industry on the Big Island by presenting the Big Island Chocolate Festival as an educational and outreach opportunity for local cacao farmers, the hospitality industry and cacao enthusiasts.
