Brewing Excitement in 2024: Mark Your Calendar for the Ultimate Chocolate & Coffee Celebration!

Dear DMV Chocolate & Coffee Supporters,

Thank you all so much for an amazing and record breaking year. We sincerely appreciate every single attendee for taking time out of the year to meet us not just once, but TWICE at the Dulles Expo Center to support over 250 businesses between the Spring & Fall events! In the fall you came out in record numbers (10,000+) and our vendors felt the love! We couldn’t do this event without the amazing vendors who dedicate their time and energy to creating such a fantastic experience for everyone who walks through the front door. We appreciate their passion, professionalism, and dedication to bringing us the amazing coffees, chocolates, and creations that fuel us throughout the year. From the farmers around the world to the businesses in our backyard to the taste buds of a satisfied customer, the positive impact of this industry is immeasurable and we thank you for letting us be a small part of it by bringing this amazing community together each year. 


So…ready for 2024?  WE ARE!

Get ready for an unforgettable experience as we gear up for the third annual DMV Chocolate and Coffee Festival – new dates are set, and we're ready to take it to the next level! Mark your calendars for November 16th & 17th at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA. It's an event you won't want to miss, so save the date and get ready to indulge your senses!


What's in Store This Year?

Prepare for a delightful adventure as you sample and shop from over 150 vendors! From gourmet coffee to exquisite chocolates in every imaginable form, as well as teas, honey, jams, hot sauces, and a variety of gourmet food offerings – there's something for every palate. But that's not all – we've also got a curated selection of artists, crafters, fashion, and more! Fall shopping just got a whole lot sweeter.

Onsite Experiences for Everyone to Enjoy!

Shopping is just the beginning! Immerse yourself with onsite experiences like classes, demonstrations, presentations, photo ops, and more! Take your coffee knowledge to the next level with our professionally led coffee cupping experiences and partake in curated chocolate tasting sessions. Get photos with our mascots: Chunk the chocolate bar, and Bean the coffee cup! Then take your little ones to the free kids' crafts corner where they can partake in coffee filter crafts + coloring pages! It's the perfect weekend for the whole family.

What's New This Year?

Come back for your returning favorites, but be sure to plan extra time to meet many new faces exhibiting with us this year. Expect to see even more coffee roasters and chocolate makers as we continue to invite new creators from around the region. You can also expect to enjoy some new classes/presentations onsite (announcements coming soon). Have a burning desire to learn about a specific topic?
