It’s no secret that rainy weather and hot cocoa go hand-in-hand. And if you’re a chocolate lover, make it two cups! Luckily, Vancouverites won’t have to wait long for the return of the beloved Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival, and now, the list of participating vendors for the 2023 fest is out.

A staple experience in the Greater Vancouver area for over a decade, the hot chocolate fest brings together some of the best cafes, bakeries, and dessert spots in the city, and by extension, the best cups of cocoa. And to say that we’re stoked about the list of vendors this year would be an understatement.
