Fort St. John’s annual Chocolate Festival returns Feb. 11, and bakers and volunteers are needed to make this year’s fundraiser for local arts programming a success.
Whether it’s squares, candy, cakes, cookies, commercially made or crafted by the kids, organizers are asking interested bakers to sign up and support art in its many forms at the North Peace Cultural Centre and Peace Gallery North.
Participants will have to make two batches of their delectable dessert dish, one to be cut up for samples, and the other to be sold during a live auction held in the evening.
Funds raised at the event go towards arts programming including the Creative Kids After School Program and the Let’s Art free art class.
The festival starts at 6 p.m. on Feb. 11, with tickets available through the NPCC box office and website.
Those interested in taking part as baker or volunteer, or those looking for tickets, should contact Oliver Hachmeister at the cultural centre at 250-785-1992.
