This year, the Chocolate Festival is produced by The Willimantic Lions Club and other generous area businesses and donors. Each festival is marketed and activities are planned only with the advertising and sponsor revenue generated that year.

As in years past, businesses throughout downtown Willimantic are encouraged to open up their storefronts and offer special events, samples, menus and incentives to patrons on the day of the Chocolate Festival. 500 people come from all over CT, and New England, to stop in your store! All participating businesses will receive a line listing on the WillimanticDowntown.org website and on our Facebook page and on the poster, and in as many promotions as possible.
