6th Annual Northeast Family Chocolate Festival (3/20)

Are your mouths watering yet?  The title of this post alone will do that - Chocolate - yum! 

This Saturday (3/20) at the Washington Avenue Armory, 175 Central Avenue, Albany, New York, bring the family down to this fun and exciting and can't forget yummy, Chocolate Festival!  If you want additional information click here to check it out.

Festivities will kick-off at 10 am with a unique performance by ventriloquist Sylvia Markson, immediately followed by music from the ever-popular Zucchini Brothers. Entertainment on the main stage will continue throughout the day with comic juggling by The Incredible Larry, followed by a Karaoke Idol competition just for kids! For specific details, visit

A number of face painters and balloon artists will be available throughout the entire day. At the ACCA booth, children will have the opportunity to take part in marshmallow tossing and Oreo stacking games with free tshirts and book giveaways. The Schenectady Museum & Suits-Bueche Planetarium will have interactive science and math games for children of all ages. All of this is included in the price of admission!

With Easter only two weeks away, it’s a perfect opportunity to stock up on all of your chocolate and candy needs in one convenient location! This year’s festival will have over 40 exhibitors—more chocolate, specialty food and craft vendors than ever before! Come and purchase chocolate candy, chocolate bunnies, gourmet chocolate and nuts, fudge and confections, nut-free and sugar-free chocolate, and much, much more.

Tickets are available for purchase at any Price Chopper 24/7. Just like last year, our Value 4-Pak is available for $20 and includes admission for any four people! General admission is $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 2-12. Tickets will also be available at the door.

See you there!

We had been thinking about going to this. Last year we did not love the event held at the State Museum. Now it is back where I remember it from years ago. Thank you for the $20 deal mention - did not know about that.
