Visitors can browse a decadent spread of chocolate in every shape and form. Over 40 artisanal vendors will be selling gourmet truffles, chocolate bars, cakes, cookies, brownies, pies ... basically, our dreams come true. A holiday market will supply unique wares by local artisans, so find the perfect gift with one-of-a-kind trinkets and home decor.

Plenty of all-ages fun will be scheduled throughout the afternoon. Visitors can make homemade s'mores around a fire pit courtesy of the Annapolis Fire Department and enjoy live music. Kids can go wild at a gingerbread house bouncy castle! Admission also includes complimentary hot chocolate with local law enforcement, as part of "Hot Cocoa with the Popo." The festival will end on a magical note, as West Street will come alive with its annual Holiday Light Canopy.
