Cacao is native to the Americas, and the Toledo District of southern Belize is recognized for its superior cacao. These cacao beans are a significant export crop and, within country, are transformed into distinctive and high quality chocolate.
Every Commonwealth Day Holiday Weekend (late May) we celebrate this marvellous food, and many devoted followers return to Toledo each year to find out what’s new in the world of chocolate making. This will be the tenth year the Festival will be growing awareness of Belizean chocolate, and continue to capture a wider international audience.
Join us for a three-day celebration of Belizean chocolate and the cacao-driven culture of the Toledo District. Use the links on the left to learn more about the Festival.
