For the eighth year in a row, Washington, DC History & Culture will host the McLean Chocolate Festival at the McLean Community Center (1234 Ingleside Avenue) on Sunday, Jan. 27.

The event is a fundraiser for the McLean Rotary, which provides funds to support other local non-profit groups.

The festival will run from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

In 2018, 2,500 people stopped by the event and the festival was able to raise $14,000 for local groups.

No advance tickets or registration is required. Admission is $2 for adults. Admission for children three or under is free. Credit cards are usually accepted at the event, but cash is recommended.

In addition to chocolate, the event will have a room set aside for live family-friendly entertainment throughout the day. A lecture will also be held on how chocolate was made in colonial America.
