When & Where
York Chocolate Festival
Join us for the 4th York Chocolate Festival taking place across York from 3rd - 6th April 2015
The city of York has had a long and distinguished history with the confectionery and chocolate industry, even back in 1781 the city boasted 8 confectioners for it's 17,000 inhabitants. Today the Nestle Chocolate Factory still creates a million Kit Kats a day, whilst the city has a pungent, comforting smell of dark chocolate lingering over it on roasting days. Many of York's population have had family that once worked in the confectionery dynasties of Rowntree, Terrys and Cravens, and everyone has a lasting memory of their favourite chocolate bar, many of which were created in our fair city.
