For Vendors

We are thrilled to be back for our 40th edition of Chocolate Fest on Oct. 20 and 21, 2023, after the pandemic-forced interruption!

If you’re in the chocolate business, we invite you to join us and turn our crowd of enthusiastic guests into loyal customers!

Here’s a chance to showcase your business and your chocolate products to a targeted audience of 700 self-selected chocolate lovers from all over the Bay Area. An elegant and festive mood will be set with live jazz, champagne, wine, and coffee.

We ask you to provide enough of your unique chocolate confections to give each of our guests a sample — just a bite really!

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to build name recognition for your business. We’re working hard on publicity for 2023 and will reach out to the entire Bay Area through advertising that targets chocolate lovers. And we will be spreading the word with our familiar event banner across downtown Belmont’s Ralston Avenue.

Short on hands? We can staff your table and tell visitors about your business if you can’t attend in person. However, if possible, we encourage confectioners to staff their own tables so they can speak directly with guests and tell their own story.

This year, we invite you to sell your product at your table. This is a change from previous Chocolate Fests when your products were sold in the Chocolate Boutique.

We offer a single vendor fee for all three sessions of Chocolate Fest 2023 — $150.

Chocolate Fest is a charity fundraising event of the Congregational Church of the Peninsula. Over the past 40 years, proceeds from Chocolate Fest have helped support Samaritan House, Second Harvest Food Bank, and many other community programs in San Mateo County, as well as key projects at the church. We expect the proceeds of Chocolate Fest 2023 to go even further in supporting neighbors in need.

It’s a worthy cause. Everybody has a smile on their face, even the people that are setting up and working and the volunteers, everybody has a good time. And the community really comes together for this event. I think the other people that are involved, the other vendors, are most generous and I just have found this is one of the best events that we have been involved in over the years.”
