The Fine Cacao and Chocolate Institute (FCCI) and Uncommon Cacao have announced a second #StayHomeWithChocolate Festival, scheduled for Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13; and Friday, June 19 and Saturday, June 20.

The #StayHomeWithChocolate Festival is a global digital event set to take place via Instagram Live, stretching across four days of the ‘Month of Dad,’ with interactive chocolate programming for all ages to taste, learn and buy chocolate.

In today’s world of social distancing, it is impossible to attend a big festival or gather in large groups to celebrate Dad. During these challenging times, #StayHomeWithChocolate is pleased to offer a new experience for chocolate-loving dads and their families all around the world​,” said a spokesperson for the event.

The online event provides consumers with a unique opportunity to connect with and discover some of the world's best chocolate and confections, learn about the chocolate making (and tasting) process, and support small businesses impacted by COVID-19.

The Festival will include Instagram Live sessions hosted by chocolate experts from around the world including US, Brazil, Belgium, Guatemala, the UK, and Canada. Sessions will include ‘dad-inspired activities’ including a Bourbon and Chocolate pairing (Videri Chocolate), Grilling with Cacao (Bixby & Co), Single Origin Tasting Flight Kits (Dick Taylor Chocolate) and How to Make Beer Truffles (Banyan Tree Chocolate).
