The McFarland Chocolate Fest will be held October 7, 2017, at the Madison Curling Club in McFarland from 7 to 9:30 PM. Thanks to everyone who made the 2016 Chocolate Fest a huge success!
Imagine an elegant evening of candlelight, pleasant music, champagne and all the dreamy chocolate desserts you could ever desire. There you have it – the McFarland Chocolate Fest! All proceeds of this marvelous affair benefit the historic Larson House in the heart of McFarland. See Video on You Tube. Thanks to those who are donating beverages and items for the silent auction. This is the major fund raiser keeping the Larson House Museum open for all to enjoy.
The best bakers in McFarland AND our featured baker, (who in 2016 was Leanne Cordisco of the Chocolatrian Cafe), will tempt us with their prized offerings where the major ingredient is CHOCOLATE! For a pleasant break from the many chocolate desserts, there will also be a fruit and cheese table available at no extra charge.
The Chocolate Fest will be held Saturday, October 7th, 2017, from 7 to 9:30 PM at the Madison Curling Club, 4802 Marsh Road, McFarland. The silent auction tables are always very popular. Live music is provided by some talented musicians. Coffee, cider and champagne and all the chocolate you can eat is free with your $20 ticket.
In 2016, we offered a wine tasting area where three wines from Sinnippee Valley Vineyard in Keiler, Wisconsin, were sampled. These wines were chosen to pair nicely with fruit, cheese or chocolate. Those tasting the wines chose one and received a full glass as part of their wine tasting experience. Wine tasting tickets were purchased for only $5. We plan to offer wine tasting again in 2017.
This event is very popular so you are encouraged to buy tickets at the McFarland State Bank, at the McFarland House Cafe or online and pick them up by will-call. Tickets will be available for sale starting August 1, 2017. When the tickets are gone, no more will be sold.
