The Glendale Chocolate Affaire features not only a celebration of chocolate, but also romance. Held just before Valentine's Day, more than 30 chocolate specialty vendors, offering everything from chocolate-covered bacon to chocolate-covered churros to chocolate-covered key lime pie, will be on hand.

What else should I know about the Glendale Chocolate Affaire?

Cerreta Candy Company will offer tours all weekend. It is about 8 blocks from the the site of the Glendale Chocolate Affaire. Sometimes there is a shuttle service, but if not, and it is a nice day, it is worth the walk! Cerreta's conducts factory tours all year long on weekdays. The tours on Glendale Chocolate Affaire weekend are usually special, and allow you to see more of the inner operations where they manufacture their chocolate creations. They are sure to have a booth at the Glendale Chocolate Affaire, so stop by and ask what's going on at the candy factory that day.

At the same time a large gathering of national romance novelists in the Southwest takes place at the same location. This symposium of literary romantics offers fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with authors. Free writing workshops are offered.

For the kids there will be make-and-take crafts, face-painting, carnival rides and a rock-climbing wall.

On Saturday there will be a Plein Air competition in Glendale that day.
