The Chocolate Experience festival takes over downtown Glendale this weekend

Glendale's long-running Chocolate Affaire transforms into The Chocolate Experience


Discover a new spin on Glendale's long-running Chocolate Affaire in 2020, as the city of Glendale presents The Chocolate Experience

The Chocolate Experience goes 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8 and noon-5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9 at the Glendale Civic Center, 5750 W. Glenn Drive.
