Festichoc, the scrumptious chocolate festival, will be taking place this year on April 2-3 in Versoix. It is one of the largest chocolate festivals in Switzerland, with tastings, sales, exhibitions and much more.
This family-friendly event brings together over 25 artisan chocolatiers from all around Switzerland. The festival includes tastings, sales, chocolate sculptures exhibitions, events, and food stands.
