Calgary’s sweetest event is back, folks and man, are we happy to see it on the horizon. Get ready, get set, because Monday, February 1st will mark the very first day of YYC’s 2021 Hot Chocolate Fest.

Every year, for an entire month, several local businesses around the city will sell their very best version of everyone’s favourite seasonal drink in hopes of winning a coveted title.

This particular HCF is going to be more important than ever because, in addition to warming yourselves from the inside out, you’ll also be supporting YYC Business and giving to charity!

This time around, $1 of each choco sold in the non-spirit category and $2 from every cup entered in the spirited category, will go towards supporting the event organizers Calgary Meals on Wheels; an organization dedicated to providing nutritious meals to those in need.

This competition gets wild, guys, but it’s not all just about sprinkles and syrups. It’s also about doing some good and we love that!

A list of the participating cafes, restaurants, and chocolatiers has not been revealed yet, but we will keep you updated. You won’t want to miss a beat!


When: Monday, February 1st – Sunday, February 28th
Where: TBD
