Finally, as if you needed a reason to check out YYC Hot Chocolate Fest,  like every year before it, this event will not only taste incredible (and be incredibly accommodating) it will also help people in need, at a time when many need it the most. In participation with Calgary Meals on Wheels, a portion of the proceeds made from every beverage sold will go to providing nutritious meals to YYC families and children – so get out there! … Or just order in, because that’s also an option this time around.

It’s going to be a blast, Calgary! Happy drinking!


When: Monday, February 1st – February 28th
