5TH COFFEE AND CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL - ZAGREB COFFEE & CHOCOFEST

Event Factory organizes the 5th Coffee and Chocolate Festival - Zagreb Coffee & Chocofest which will take place February 11 to 14, 2016 at the Festival Pavilion at Ban Josip Jelačić Square in Zagreb.

After two years in the beautiful HDLU, they have decided for the festival's 5th edition to go back to where it all started - Ban Josip Jelačić Square, and in this way to mark this small anniversary.

In the past four years, Zagreb Coffee & Chocofest was visited by over 500,000 visitors from Zagreb, Croatia and the whole region.
With over 100 exhibitors and more than 120 workshops, lectures and cooking show program, the ART program hosted a number of great artists: Karen Eland (USA), Saimir Strati (Albania) and Gorazd Potočnik (Slovenia)

The aim of the festival is still the same: presenting the best Croatian and international chocolates and coffees.

Through various promotions, presentations, workshops and sale, numerous Croatian and international manufacturers and importers will present the latest trends in gastronomy and industry of coffee and chocolate, and the artists will in their own ways through techniques present the magic of chocolate artism.

On the occasion of Valentine's Day all visitors in love with coffee and chocolate will be able to hug the large Zagreb Coffee & Chocofest heart 3 meters in diameter at Ban Jelačić square and have their picture taken.

The novelty of this year's concept is that because of the great interest of visitors in previous years, this year the Zagreb Coffee & Chocofest, besides at Ban Jelačić Square, will be held at several other locations – Center for food culture, Wine bar Good Wines, and selected Zagreb bars, hotels and restaurants.
