About the Chocolate Festival

john-greenThis festival, a charitable organization (a 501-C3), was the brainchild of the late John Green, who had the vision of partnering local non-profit agencies together, hand-in-hand, to organize an event where they all could reap the benefits and enjoy CHOCOLATE!

Mr. Green would be proud to know that volunteers from these charities have spent countless hours to make this the largest Chocolate Festival in Eastern North Carolina. Over the past twelve years the Carolina Chocolate Festival has donated over $550,000 to these fine charities, in addition to Scholarships to local high school seniors.
