Eurochocolate Festival 2020, Perugia, Italy
October 16, 2020 - October 25, 2020
Chocoholics should head for the wonderful city of Perugia in Umbria, Italy this October. Each year the medieval city hosts the International Chocolate Festival, the Eurochocolate Festival.
This year will see the 27th edition of the Eurochocolate festival under the theme of Choco di parole, which is a pun in Italian, because “gioco di parole” means wordplay or pun, and “choco” and “gioco” sound very similar. The city is renowned for its Perugina chocolate company that produces the famous baci chocolate kisses.
The largest chocolate festival in Europe, Eurochocolate will feature more than 130 exhibitors, from major chocolate companies to artisanal chocolatiers, with more than 6,000 chocolate treats to savour.
As of 1 October, the status of Eurochocolate was placed in doubt. For an update, visit the official website.
