Big Island Chocolate Festival

May 1, 2020 - May 2, 2020

The ninth Big Island Chocolate Festival is May 1-2, 2020 and celebrates Hawai‘iʻs Lei Day holiday with the apt theme: Choco-Lei Day. Culinarians are encouraged to create booths depicting Lei Day and/or lei garlands made out of the materials of your choice. Culinary booths will be judged on their use of the Choco-Lei Day theme, based on the concept of Hawai‘i’s Lei Day with the incorporation of chocolate.

Celebrated annually on May 1, May Day is Lei Day in the 50th state. It’s when residents compete in elaborate lei making contests and schools stage May Day programs with a “royal court” presided by a king and queen. And of course, Lei Day is a great time to “lei” on some love with a special garland of island blossoms.
