Live entertainers will include The Extreme Magic of Eric Wilzig, DJ Chef Beats & Sweets Interactive Cooking Show, an appearance by Paris Themmen, the actor who starred in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, and more.

Vendors will include Adirondack Winery, All American Wontons, Bang Cookies, Chocolate Moonshine Fudge, Cozy Tea Loft, DaVinci Chocolatier, Lily’s Chocolate Paradise, Swizzled Desserts, and many more.
