Ghirardelli Chocolate Company is excited to invite you to the 18th annual, two-day chocolate celebration that has transformed into a true San Francisco staple. Over 30 vendors generously donate sample-sized portions of their products to help raise money for Project Open Hand, a fundraising organization that provides â€œmeals with loveâ€ to people living with serious illnesses and to seniors in San Francisco and Alameda County.
With such a significantly historical part of our heritage beautifully located in the heart of San Franciscoâ€™s waterfront, it makes perfect sense to throw a chocolate festival where it all began. Festival goers have the chance to experience the latest chocolate trends all while surrounding themselves in the rich history of Americaâ€™s longest operating chocolate company. The Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival started in 1996, and has been a hit every year since.
