Is Burlington ChocolateFest Gone Forever?
A popular festival in Burlington might be permanently done for. The LGRN reports that Burlington ChocolateFest may never recover from the current health crisis. The city canceled the 2020 event, and Burlington officials are working to remove Chocolate City USA from its city’s tagline. Event organizers say its hard to have a chocolate festival, if you are no longer Chocolate City, and they are struggling to find the enthusiasm to continue the event. The organziers also blame the COVID-19 pandemic for its effect on the festival. ChocolateFest, and Chocolate City USA have been Burlington staples for 33 years.
