The Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival 2015

How do you keep yourself warm when winter arrives? Some people escape the cold by chasing the sun, others bundle up in layer upon layer of warm clothing and many Vancouverites visit the 24 cafes and restaurants participating in this year’s Hot Chocolate Festival!

The 2015 Hot Chocolate Festival will kick off on January 17th and last 27 days, giving you plenty of opportunity to explore the 57 wild and imaginative hot chocolate concoctions created specifically for this event.
