Tampa Bay Chocolate Festival Coming Back for 11th Year (again…. yay, thanks rain!) to the Tampa Bay Area!

This is the 2nd Tampa Bay Chocolate Festival 2024 of the year due to rain at the Original event. We decided to do it again!

This is an indoor/outdoor , rain or shine event!

The festival is a two-day celebration of all things chocolate, with over 100 vendors from all over the country selling everything from chocolate truffles and bars to chocolate-covered pretzels and popcorn. There will also be live entertainment, demonstrations, and chocolate-themed activities for all ages.

The festival is open to the public and admission is free. However, there is still a fee for food and some activities.

Don’t forget to bring a bag to carry home all of your chocolate purchases!

🍫Vendor info at:

We are gonna go ahead and get this out of the way now, so no one is disappointed..

This is a THEMED FOOD event…

The Food Vendors will have their NORMAL items AS WELL AS specialty items , using Coco as the main ingredient.

There are in fact many dedicated Chocolate Vendors… however, this is not just the same Chocolate event that everyone else throws..

We do our own thing.

This event AVERAGES around 12k attendees , and that goes up every year ..

If you show up at the end of the day.. you run the risk of food running out. Food Vendors can only hold so much.

Food Vendors are not fast food. Food takes the time to cook that it takes. Keep in mind Food Vendors normally have 1 or 2 cooks, and 1 person taking orders. If patience isnt your thing… we are sure McDonalds has something chocolate down the road that will be in your hand in about 20 seconds (if the machine is working).

Please plan on having fun.

If you plan on just coming to critique an event, please don’t bother. We prefer happy attendees, that are tolerant of everyone.

People that come on the event page to be rude will be banned from the page.

The event is free to Enter.

There are food options for everyone, vegetarian, gluten free, keto, paleo, Pescatarian, and maybe even Pesca-Pescatarian…

The event is pet friendly, however , you will still need to bring whatever you need to take care of said pet.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at generationfoodtruck@gmail.com

Thank you to everyone for the love, patience, and understanding… we hope to make this years Tampa Bay Chocolate Festival better than ever!
