Chocolate Lover Festival 2014 - Biking or Non Biking depending on the weather

The Chocolate Lover Festival 2014 is happening during the first weekend in February. History

The festival was developed in 1992 as a joint effort of the City of Fairfax, Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Fairfax Coalition, Downtown Fairfax Merchants Association and George Mason University. The purpose of the festival was to draw visitors to Old Town Fairfax, to encourage community participation and to foster cooperation among the city government, the business community and local residents. About this year's festival

The Chocolate Lovers Festival, an annual two-day festival held on the first full weekend of February, features activities for all to enjoy. In 2014, the festival will be held February 1-2.

Join us for the Taste of Chocolate, the Chocolate Challenge, the ever-popular Kiwanis Chocolate Chip Pancake Breakfast, open houses at historic buildings and much more.

Some events require a fee, and other events are free to all visitors.


If you would like more information on the event, please visit - http://www.chocolatefestival.net/

We can meetup at a location and bike there, or can meet directly at the festival. Once there, we can go through the festival together, or grab something to eat at the Pancake event (8 am to 1 pm) and disperse into smaller groups (depending on the number of people coming).

If Biking, we will meet at earlier time than suggested below, i would like to be at the festival by 11 AM. From Seven Corners, falls church, its only 10 miles through residential neighborhood streets

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask away :)

      I'm going to bike there from the courthouse area in arlington. Planning on leaving at about 930/945 to get there around 11 at a leisurely pace.

    i would definitely be interested in doing this, but it is not very accessible to me since i am metro-dependent. If anyone that is going has any extra space in their car then I am calling dibs (and chip in for gas of course), but if not I am going to have to tap out.

    I have cross posted this in two of the other Active groups I am part of....depending on the total count, i will update but looking at a good turn up (around 20 ppl) so I am sure we can get into smaller groups and disperse through the festival the way we would like
