The festival, now in its second year, has been hugely successful. All the events were very well attended and several hundred people took part during the 10-day long events. This year the festival received outstanding media coverage from the UK, particularly through social media, as well as regional and local media. The festival welcomed farmers, businesses, vendors, artists, families and persons with an interest in cocoa and chocolate and at the end, a silent auction held over the ten days raised EC$7,064. This money will be donated to Vendomme RC Primary School to assist with the purchasing of computers and to Mt. Zion Library in St. George’s to help improve the facilities there. The Grenada Chocolate Festival would not have been a success without the generous support you provided us. We deeply appreciate the willingness with which you have sponsored our efforts to celebrate the quality of cocoa and chocolate produced in Grenada, while contributing to the community. As you know, the festival depends on sponsorship and voluntary support of so many individuals, organizations and businesses and it is our sincere hope that you will join us again in 2016. We have already announced the dates for the 2016 chocolate festival (tentatively April 29th to May 8th) with the theme “Creating Generation Cocoa” and we plan to focus on developing the participation and creativity of the young people. We hope very much that you will be able to join us again in celebrating and raising the profile of Grenada’s cocoa and chocolate. Thank you once again.
