Two days of chocolate!

Apr. 18 and 19

Mark your calendars, the 2015 Festival of Chocolate starts Apr. 18!  

Ticket sales begin on Feb. 6.

Check back with us for more details!


During the two days of The Festival of Chocolate, April 18 and 19, 2015, the entire museum is transformed into a chocolate educational experience and access to most museum areas will be limited. In order to better serve our members during The Festival of Chocolate, the museum will only be accessible to those wishing to attend The Festival of Chocolate. The Festival of Chocolate is a special admission event and proceeds help fund MOSI’s educational programming. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 


MOSI will host the fifth annual Festival of Chocolate, Florida’s largest all-chocolate themed event as seen in Southern Living Magazine and on ABC's The Chew, Apr. 18 - 19, 2015.  Sponsored in part by Bank of Tampa, The Festival of Chocolate will feature amazing chocolate indulgences, the Cocoa Couture Fashion Show,  a live cake decorating competition, and The Great American Candy Run, a race of epically sweet and sticky proportions.

The event features the area's best chocolate and confection companies selling tastes and treats of everything chocolate from truffles, cakes and cupcakes to cookies, brownies and ice creams.  Chocolate savory items, including chocolate BBQ sauce and meat rubs, will return for those looking for an alternative to the super sweet. Like us on Facebook for up to date reminders as the event gets closer!
