30th Annual Tahoe Chocolate and Wine Festival

Like peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and wine go together so perfectly. It’s probably one of the reasons why Tahoe’s Annual Chocolate and Wine Festival is so popular, and has held strong for 30 years!

This fan favorite returns on Friday, November 2 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel Lakeside Ballroom from 6PM to 10PM. This year’s theme ‘Denims and Diamonds’ features an evening of chocolate by local Lake Tahoe culinary artists, bespoke wine tasting from notable California wines, hearty appetizers, a silent and live auction, and the chance to vote for your favorite chocolate and wine.

The Tahoe Chocolate and Wine Festival benefits the Tahoe SAFE Alliance, a local nonprofit that provides free programs and services to survivors of violence and abuse, and also educates area youth and community members on violence prevention and healthy relationships.

Table and ticket sales are live now ($1250/table or $125/ticket) and you can also purchase tickets at the door for $150/each. Be sure to reserve your spot as this event can sell out!
