The candy factory will offer free tours with shuttles sponsored by SRP to the factory during event hours and visitors can expect to receive a free sample of their candy.

Downtown Glendale will be filled with nearly 40 chocolate purveyors. The Chocolate Affaire is presented by Arizona’s famous candy makers, Cerreta Candy Company. Families with children will enjoy a variety of activities, face-painting, entertainment and more. And of course, Cerreta’s chocolate-pizza-making booth is a hit with all ages.
