The Collins Center is excited to bring you Harrisonburg's sweetest event, the Chocolate Walk, now in its eighth year! It has never been easier to support a cause you believe in than by feasting on chocolate while enjoying a stroll around town. Your participation in the Chocolate Walk directly supports the Collins Center's mission to eliminate sexual violence and its impact in our community. What a sweet vision!
Please join us on Friday, April 5 from 4 – 8 pm as participating businesses and organizations in downtown Harrisonburg invite you in to sample the best of our local chocolatiers. Each site will offer a different type of chocolate treat including truffles, fudge, cupcakes, brownies, cookies and so much more!
Registration is required and will take place in the Turner Pavilion (Farmers' Market) between 4:00 - 7:00pm, where participants can pick up their maps and special boxes to collect chocolate treats at 20+ stops nearby.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $8 for children 10 and under.
Questions about the event can be directed to Jess Balac: firstname.lastname@example.org | 540-432-6430
All proceeds benefit the Collins Center.
We are forever grateful to RISE for organizing the first Chocolate Walk in 2011 and their ongoing partnership!
Will the event happen rain or shine?
Yes! Our event will take place in any weather condition. Refunds will not be given due to the weather.
I have an infant or small toddler that won't eat chocolate. Do I need to purchase a ticket for her/him?
No, children that are not old enough to participate fully do not need to have a ticket.
I just want to walk with my friends, but do not plan to participate otherwise. Do I need to purchase a ticket?
No, it is not necessary to purchase a ticket unless you plan to collect chocolate.
Do I have to go to every host site and participate for the entire 4 hours?
No, you may go to as many stops as you like, in any order between 4:00 - 8:00 pm.
Can I purchase additional tickets at check-in?
Yes, as long as supplies last, you may purchase extra tickets while you are at registration. We will be accepting cash or credit for additional tickets.
