The second Winelands Chocolate Festival takes place at Blaauwklippen Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of August 2016. The festival offers an even bigger and better line-up with activities for the whole family, plus a programme designed especially for children.
Little ones at the festival can get really involved with their favourite sweet treats through a variety of fun and educational activities. Gabi Soule, one of SA’s most experienced chocolatiers and confectioners, and owner of Rococoa Coffee and Chocolate Shop, will be hosting hourly playtime activities for children aged between 5 and 12 years old. These playtime tickets are R20. They are available via Webtickets and are additional to the entry fee. Children 6 years and under enter the festival free of charge.
Activities include (be warned: parents will probably need extra efficient washing powder after the event!):
- Face Painting
- Finger Painting
- Hand Prints
- Chocolate Word Puzzles
- Chocolate Maze Games
- Educational Videos about Chocolate
- Screenings of the ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ movie
Even more exciting is that Rococoa will create a life-like Cocoa Plantation at the festival. Here, kids will be able to see how real cocoa pods are harvested off the trees and processed.
Although tickets can be purchased via Webtickets , you will need to quote your ticket number and confirm your times directly with Gabi on 073 155 9385. Numbers are limited so book early to not be disappointed. Make sure children are brought to the sessions five minutes earlier so that they can enjoy a full hour’s entertainment. Parents/guardians can then collect the children after the session. Gabi and a qualified supervisor will be in attendance at all times at the children’s play hours.
Keep an eye out for updates on more features, special guests and activities.
