Hey there, the NW Chocolate Festival is happening on September 20-22, 2013 at the Washington State Convention Center.
Friday, September 20th, is the awards night and party gala from 6-11pm (It appears a VIP ticket is required to attend).
Saturday and Sunday are the main show, from 10am-5pm.
The organizers are featuring four raw and vegan chocolatiers this year: Fearless Chocolate, Raaka Chocolate, The Chocolate Conspiracy, and Pacari.
Here is the NW Chocolate Festival website with all the details:
I hope you can attend. If you're interested, we can all meetup and hang out, or maybe attend some of the classes together. I had a blast two years ago, and I'm definitely looking forward to this year's event! :)
