In only three years, smooth Festival of Chocolate has become Australia’s biggest festival of its kind.

The inaugural smooth Festival of Chocolate, held over the October Long Weekend in 2014, attracted over 70,000 visitors. In 2015 the smooth Festival of Chocolate attracted over 112,000 visitors to The Rocks across the festival weekend, 12th & 13th September and on 10th and 11th September 2016 it attracted over 123,000 visitors.  With over 8500 Instagram posts pushed out by festival goers the reach of the event has extended socially to over 1.2mil people!

Festival exhibitors have included cult-foodie-favourites Adriano Zumbo, Black Star Pastry, Gelato Messina, Josophan’s Fine Chocolates, N2 Gelato Serendipity Ice Cream, Serendipity Ice Cream, My Donut Box, Kayter Con and InterContinental Hotel with large-scale pop-ups from Lindt Master Chocolatiers and Arnott’s Tim Tam.

But it’s not all about chocolate…

The festival brings together the entire Lifestyle experience from Chocolate to Wine to Food and beyond. The Rocks is an atmospheric, cultural hub that brings together the finest things Sydney has to offer. With its rich heritage, cobblestone laneways and boutique providers - there is no better backdrop for this tasty event.

The festival not only includes opportunities for the public to explore and engage with exhibitors, but a range of other activities to increase participation and dwell time at the event including:

  • Smooth FM lounge – an area for people to relax and peruse their purchased goodies
  • Callebaut Test Kitchen – hosted by Cameron Daddo, featuring a range of special guest chefs, performing across both days of the festival
  • Chocolatiers Workshop – featuring themed chocolate displays from artisan chocolatiers from around Australia.
  • Entertainment – Roving entertainers throughout the festival
  • Smooth FM Stage – Appearances by Smooth FM Talent
  • Bar Area – all aged, located on the MCA lawn

The festival is not to be missed by anyone in the chocolate, dessert, confectionary or associated industries. The smooth Festival of Chocolate will be bigger and better in 2016 with a greater variety of exhibitors, sponsors and special guests. The festival will be promoted heavily on smoothfm 95.3 and through television, online portals and social media channels where smooth commands a combined audience of over 750,000 Sydneysiders.
