Chocolate Festival Perugia

DATES FOR 2012 - 19 - 28 OCTOBER 2012

The International Eurochocolate festival of Perugia is undoubtedly one of the most sought after Chocolate Festivals amongst Italians and chocolate lovers alike.

The Umbrian capital will turn into a huge open-air chocolate shop!

View our Perugia Hotels here and book at least six months before the festival as Perugia is a small city.

The popularity of this festival continues to grow and accommodation is limited.

OCTOBER 2011 UPDATE - please contact us now if you wish to arrange accommodation during the 2012 festival.

The festival is organised in association with many other large scale events focusing on the "food of the gods", with exhibitions, workshops, internships, cooking classes, tastings, banquets and celebrations, as well as the coveted Eurochocolate Awards prize.

Each year new ideas and themes are developed for the festival. The theme for 2012 is "iChoc: Applichiamoci" - we'll post more information as it is released from the organisers.

In previous years themes have included "Prisoners of Chocolate",  “City of Chocolate”, “Chokolate Revolution,” and even “Chocolage” (the evolution of chocolate).

For visitors this event is without doubt a good chance to discover this delightful medieval town and to enjoy the famous Umbrian hospitality while sampling some of the finest chocolate that Europe has to offer!
