PARADISE, Calif. – The Paradise Chocolate Fest has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, Executive Director, Debbie Moseley announced Tuesday.

“After careful deliberation, given the risks posed by the Coronavirus, along with the recently declared state of emergency by State of California and guidelines set by Center for Disease Control, we have made the difficult, but necessary decision to postpone this spring’s Paradise Chocolate Fest celebration until the fall,” Moseley said.

Youth on the Ridge Community Foundation has announced a new date for this year’s Paradise Chocolate Fest, to now be held Saturday, September 12 at Terry Ashe Park on the Skyway in Paradise, Moseley said.

The annual celebration is typically filled with countless chocolate delicacies, musical entertainment, art, authors, hands-on learning stations, youth writing contest, chocolate pie and ice cream eating contests, community exhibits, craft beer, and premiere wine tasting. This event is for people of all ages.

Paradise Chocolate Fest provides vital support to educational, enrichment, recreational and leadership programs.

Since 2006, Paradise Chocolate Fest has contributed over $300,000 to Ridge youth programs and services. Paradise Chocolate Fest is a special event of Youth on the Ridge Community Foundation. Additional Fest fundraising events include “Chocolate, Wine & Brew” and “Chocolate Thunder Motorcycle Run”.

New dates for those events will be announced soon, Moseley said.
