Creative Discovery MuseumThere is a lot to love about chocolate. The sweet, decadent taste is a favorite among young and old. Creative Discovery Museum will celebrate chocolate’s history, lore, science and appeal at the second annual Chocolate Festival, on Saturday, September 14 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Children and families will be able to make cocoa butter lotion, sample three different types of chocolate, and attend a truffle making demonstration. Visitors will learn how chocolate pods are picked, fermented, dried, roasted, and blended to make different forms of chocolate. Children will also make a Jackson Pollack inspired chocolate expressionistic edible work in the Museum’s Art Studio.

“Chocolate is a universal joy, for children and adults,” said Liza Blair, Arts Manager at Creative Discovery Museum. “This event is a great way for guests to enjoy the lore and decadence of chocolate.”

Creative Discovery Museum’s Chocolate Festival is included with paid admission. Reservations are not required. For more information, visit www.cdmfun.org.
