The Zonta Club of Melbourne’s Annual Chocolate Festival will touch your heart and your sweet tooth.  Brevard’s best chocolatiers, pastry chefs and restaurateurs come together with community volunteers to raise funds to support programs to improve the lives of women and girls.  Proceeds benefit local scholarship programs, community service projects and the local and international fight against Human Trafficking and Violence Against Women!

Our Chocolate Festival guests are treated to samples of chocolate confections, cakes and desserts. Each guest votes to select the Competitor to be honored as, Brevard’s Best Chocolate Fix of 2018.  In addition, we provide beverages, appetizers and lots of fun.

Outside, Festival guests may purchase arts and crafts items from various vendors while strolling around the pond adjacent to the Auditorium.   Inside, Festival guests may purchase tickets for up to 30 raffle basket offerings.
