The sweet celebration of chocolate in southern Belize

Humble in appearance yet heavenly in flavor, cacao AKA chocolate, has been celebrated in the Toledo District since 2007. This southern area of Belize is recognized for its superior cacao beans that are not only a significant export product for the area but a national treasure when it comes to Belizean chocolatiers. Always held over the Commonwealth Holiday weekend (mid-May), what began as the Toledo Cacao Festival later evolved into the Chocolate Festival of Belize. This funky looking pod that almost resembles a squash and yields flavors that only dreams are made of is more than worthy of the three-day celebration in Punta Gorda Town!

Each year this delicious festival grows and attracts hundreds of visitors from around Belize and beyond. This year, the event committee is changings things up a bit with a Pre-Chocolate Bash on the evening of May 18th with the energetic music of the X-Band. The following day is the Taste of Toledo Street Fair held along front street which is closed to traffic during the day. With live music, cultural booths featuring local crafts and unique products and of course a variety of foods and chocolate to sample, the day is well-spent wandering the street and taking in the bounty of fun.

The fest is an eagerly anticipated event because of the rich diversity of chocolate and cultural offerings.
