Québec's best chocolate makers, craftsmen and confectioners gather at the Marché Bonsecours (Bonsecours Market) in Old Montréal a few days prior to Valentine's Day to present their masterpieces to the public.
Organisers offer activities like Académie du Chocolat—demonstrations by famous chefs showing off their skills, and the Grand Défilé de mode chocolaté—a chocolate fashion show.
The Montréal chocolate show 'Je t'aime en chocolat' was first organized in the winter of 2012. This biannual event is the largest fair in Québec devoted to chocolate and attracts around 20,000 visitors during the three day period.
Chocoholics can count on non-stop new discoveries and unimaginable chocolate fashion or chocolate painting. It's a great place to try all types of truffles as well as Montréal's famous macarons and other unique local products. Workshops and master classes will also help you learn a few delicious recipes for yourself.
