Craft Chocolate Experience: San Francisco

While you're in San Francisco for the FCIA Elevate Chocolate Event, plan to stay through the weekend and attend the Craft Chocolate Experience: San Francisco, March 6-8, 2020. It is a brand new chocolate festival open to the public to educate, entertain, and promote the craft chocolate industry. 

Both events will take place at the Palace of Fine Arts, so it will be easy and convenient to attend both. There will be a discount for FCIA members who purchase general admission tickets.

More details will follow once registration opens.
