Dubai, United Arab Emirates – “Nine out of ten people like chocolate, the tenth person always lies”, a quote by the famous American artist and comic books’ illustrator John G. Tullius that summarizes the philosophy of ‘Festichoc’, the annual chocolate festival in Geneva which celebrates its 16th edition this year after being cancelled for the past two years due to the global pandemic.
Happening from 2-3 April 2022 at the Espace Lachenal – Versoix on the north-west side of Lake Geneva, ‘Festichoc’ will welcome 25 chocolate artisans coming from all around Switzerland to showcase their gourmand works of art and celebrate this intricate shared passion among most people.
Featuring diverse activities for the entire family members, ‘Festichoc’ will offer different spaces for visitors to taste, explore and learn more about authentic chocolate making, all while having an enjoyable journey. These activities include:
- The Artisans Fair, a 2,000 sqm space for all things chocolate, from tastings, demonstrations and sales of chocolatey goodness.
- A sculpture contest and exhibition, where over 40 apprentice chocolatiers compete to create a masterpiece within a specific theme.
