The popular Chocolate Fest is back — with a delectable new look and feel, including a venue change and tastier ticket structure.

The Chocolate Fest 2012 fundraiser will take place Saturday, October 20, 2012, from 12 to 4 p.m. at the Harrison Center for the Arts, 1505 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis, Indiana. Benefiting Arts for Learning, the Indiana affiliate of Young Audiences, Chocolate Fest will now include a host of chefs, chocolatiers, bakers and restaurateurs offering one to three ounce “tastings” to entice attendees to buy their chocolate desserts, along with related gift items and gift cards. With more of a festival atmosphere, the event will also offer arts activities for children.

“Previously, Chocolate Fest took place downtown at the Artsgarden in the middle of the week during the lunch hour,” said Mallory Doyel, Director of Communications for Young Audiences Arts for Learning. “We believe this new venue will bring an exciting twist to the event. And having Chocolate Fest on a weekend will hopefully appeal to a greater audience and give more people the opportunity to enjoy this delicious event while supporting arts in education programming throughout the state of Indiana.”

Chocolate Fest will consist of a general admission ticket structure, including “tasting tickets” to be used for the dessert samples. Adult tickets will be $15; children $5; and there will be a special family package available for $35. Chocolate Fest sponsors include Managed Health Services (MHS); Wolfrum Capital Management Group, Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network; and National Bank of Indianapolis.
