The annual Grenada Chocolate Festival, a nine day event experience from May 11th to 19th celebrating chocolate. The festival encompassed several activities, events and experiences in various locations throughout the island where patrons got the opportunity to participate in tailored activities teaching the different stages in cocoa and chocolate production, as well as showing different aspects of the islands heritage and culture and not forgetting tourism spots.
