5th Annual Ballston Spa Chocolate Fest!

  • Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association Balston Spa, New York (map)

As part of our monthly First Friday Events, The Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association is proud to again present our February family fun event – The 5th Annual Ballston Spa Chocolate Fest! Area restaurants, bakeries, and chocolate chefs from across Saratoga County will showcase their talents throughout our downtown business district. Each chef will prepare small, sample sized, chocolate offerings in up to 3 categories: Dessert (Sweet), Savory, and Chocolate Beverage. These chocolate treats will be judged by a panel of our First Friday Fanatics as well our Visitors in fan favorite competition. 

Visitors can pick up a ballot form at any participating business and head to their favorite "Sweet Spot" shops, restaurants, and chefs to sample a $1 chocolate taste. While savoring these chocolate treats, be sure to enjoy the variety of First Friday activities going throughout the Village, including art gallery openings, live music, artist demonstrations, and special promotions and sales just in time for Valentine's Day. A complete listing of all events can be found at

Ballot forms can be turned in to any participating business by the end of the evening. Stay tuned during the following week to see if your favorites were winners. Winning chefs will be presented with Trophies to celebrate their chocolate achievements!
