Shake off the winter blues at the 2017 Chocolate Extravaganza in Chelsea, Michigan

Choc Extra

Annual Chocolate Extravaganza returns on Feb 11, 2017

Valentine’s Day. It’s coming. Whether you’re a romantic, a cynic, or a reluctant celebrator, you are likely to embrace the one aspect of the holiday that remains constant year after year – chocolate. So ingrained is chocolate in our collective mindset that the merchants and restaurateurs of Chelsea have built a festival around the delicious treat. And the accompanying holiday. Chelsea’s 9th annual Chocolate Extravaganza is set for Saturday, February 11, 2017. It’s a fabulous event that provides Valentine’s Day shopping incentives, raffles, and chocolate treats at participating stores, pubs, and restaurants.


Over 30 local businesses will offer sales, discounts, freebies, trunk shows and, of course, chocolate in all kinds of shapes and sizes. This year’s event will include free chocolate treats at the Garden Mill, sampling Fair Trade chocolates at Global Marketplace, and enjoying freshly baked Jiffy Mix goodies at Heydlauff’s. After a fabulous meal at one of our restaurants or pubs, be sure to order a yummy chocolate dessert offered on the menus that day.

Chelsea, Michigan is located north of I-94 between Ann Arbor and Jackson. Home of Jiffy Mix and the Purple Rose Theater, Chelsea is becoming known as a destination for excellent restaurants and great shopping. The stores each have their own distinct atmosphere and carry a sweeping variety of goods, which makes shopping a fun experience. Bring your friends and loved ones to Chelsea on February 11 from 10am to 5pm for a sweet and memorable day!

“How can you resist an invitation to shake off those mid-winter blues and join all of us chocolate lovers for this special weekend in Chelsea? Free parking, safe walkable streets, and pleasant shop owners await you. Nibble your way around our many locally owned businesses, warm up with some great chocolate drinks, and don’t forget to take home some fabulous gifts for the rest of the family. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!” according to Bob Pierce, Executive Director of the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce.
