Calgary’s tastiest festival kicks off on February 1st, and we finally have a list of participants! YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is going to be major this year.

All month, you can try 58 different, creative hot chocolates made by participating businesses around the city. Each participant is competing for a coveted title in one of this year’s categories, and you, the public, will get to determine the winners!

These categories include Best Hot Chocolate and the Best Spirited Hot Chocolate. They’ll also be in the running to win the Cup That Runneth Over award. What an honour.
