2019 Chocolate Festival at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas

Annual Chocolate Festival

San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas 2019

 

It’s time once again for the San Diego Botanic Garden Chocolate Festival in Encinitas.

 

The 2019 festival is this coming Saturday May 11, 2019, the day before Mother‘s Day (notice that little hint?!) from 10 – 4:00. If you are a true chocoholic like me you may be thinking “cool, I can have chocolate for breakfast!!”

 

Anyone with a fondness for chocolate living in the area will have a tough time resisting this event – I know I would be there is I wasn’t already committed for the day. We attended with friends several years ago, and it was wonderful, and everything I could have hoped for taste-wise!

 

Truffles at the San Diego Botanic Garden Chocolate Festival 

 

You will be able to enjoy delicious tastings from numerous chocolate vendors (to name a few…Pacari Chocolate, Gourmet M Chocolatesr, So Rich Chocolates, Yummy Cupcakes, David Bacco Chocolatier) of course, along with several Food Trucks and gift vendors – keep Mother’s Day in mind!

 

Tasting tickets are sold at the event at $1 per tasting ticket, with tastings typically requiring 1 – 3 tickets. Anf you WILL want to taste!!

 

Need something fun and tasty to do this weekend? Find your way to chocolate heaven at the San Diego Botanic Garden Chocolate Festival in Encinitas on Saturday May 11!! I suspect you won’t regret it…unless you overindulge (can you even DO that with chocolate??!).

Hi Jeff... you know you had me at the word "chocolate!"  I'd probably make myself sick tasting all the goodies.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Realty) about 1 year ago

I would love this festival. Yummy.

Posted by Sharon Lee, Retired and loving life (Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance) about 1 year ago

That is a perfect event to have for Mother's Day!  I am sure that if I attended, I would eat way too much chocolate, haha.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS, this is my kind of an event. Chocolate lovers will be at this event in San Diego indulging. If you are able to go, have extra chocolate for all your AR friends.

Hello Jeff - I imagine your post title is going to attract a lot of eyes and deservedly so -- fun times.  Deliciousness too!

Posted by Michael Jacobs, Los Angeles Pasadena 818.516.4393 about 1 year ago

Hi Laura Cerrano 

You would enjoy it. The San Diego Botanic Garden is gorgeous, even if there is no chocolate festival going on! THey have a wonderful art festival there, too!

Have a great weekend!

I'd plan on it John Pusa  - it seems to be the same weekend (Mother's Day) every year.

Ah, well Endre Barath, Jr.  Hope it's good busy!!

Ha ha Sally K. & David L. Hanson 

I'm sure there are a couple of people who are not chocolate fans, but can't think of any myself. I know I am!!

Hi Sharon Lee  and many do as well!

Not sure you can eat TOO much Brian England 

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) about 1 year ago

Wish I could go this year Beth Atalay  but I am booked. But IF I were going I would indeed be happy to eat a bunch in honor of my AR buds!

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) about 1 year ago

Fun and tasty times indeed Michael Jacobs . I haven't been for several years and I think it's time. I'll just have to have my own chocolate festival at home tomorrow night!!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) about 1 year ago

Hi Jeff- chocolate is like a word magnet for me. I hope that you're planning on going to this so I can live and breathe chocolate vicariously through you!

Ha ha Kathy Streib 

Well my eyes, ears and taste buds perk up when I see or hear or smell "chocolate." Unfortunately I am not able to go tomorrow to enjoy...but I may have to indulge in some chocolate on my own anyhow, and have my own festival!

Have a great weekend!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) about 1 year ago

Wish I could help Kathy Streib  I wasn't able to go today. You will just have to dream about it!! LOL.

Enjoy your weekend!
