The festival will celebrate all things chocolate and coffee from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 15 at Kilohana Plantation, located at 3-2087 Kaumualiʻi Highway in Līhuʻe. There will be free pumpkin giveaways for the keiki, lots of sampling, exhibitor booths featuring a variety of chocolate and coffee products from throughout the state featuring plenty of Hawaiʻi-grown products, local crafters and food trucks.

That’s not all. There also will be informative demonstrations, live entertainment and a silent auction.

Entertainment will include Kauaʻi Taiko, Kauaʻi Kollab, Waiola, Paul Togioka and Amy Hanaialiʻi. Presentations and demonstrations will feature Richard Loero with Kauaʻi Roastery, Will Lydgate of Lydgate Farms and Chef Orly Yadao from Orlyʻs Patisserie.


Admission is free; however, those who want to sample chocolate and coffee can purchase a passport that includes a complimentary bag. Passports are available for purchase in advance online for $35. They also can be purchased for $40 at the door while supplies last.

The event also is a benefit for the Hanapepe Economic Alliance and Maui wildfire recovery efforts.
