Attendees will start at the Valparaiso Events office, located at 150 W. Lincolnway Ave. Suite 1006 to receive their Chocolate Walk map, bag to hold their chocolate goodies, lanyard signifying their participation in the walk that also serves as their punch card, and their first mouth-watering chocolate treat.
Follow the map to visit some of downtown Valparaiso's treasured destinations and receive a tasty chocolate sample. This is a "walk" so feel free to peruse through the stores, or stop for lunch or dinner along the way!
With samples donated from some of Valpo's top candy makers, bakers, & ice cream shops, all money raised from ticket sales will help fund our many free and family friendly events held all year long in beautiful Valparaiso.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
There is no age limit for attendees. But every attendee, no matter the age, needs a ticket to partake in receiving chocolate samples.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Yes. You can buy up to 4 tickets per transaction and they can all be under your name, but given to other attendees.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
How am I identified as a Chocolate Walker?
Upon check-in, you will be given a lanyard that signifies that you are a participant and also serves as your punchcard so you can only receive one sample per location.
What do I need to bring for the Chocolate Walk?
You will be walking about 1-2 miles so wear a comfortable pair of shoes. You will be outside most of the time, so correct clothing for the weather is important. It may be helpful to bring a container to collect some of the chocolate samples as it is difficult to eat everything you are served. You should also bring water or something to drink along your walk.
How long does the Chocolate Walk take?
We don’t recommend speed Chocolate Walking!! We hope you will spend time in the charming shops and enjoy lunch at one of our many downtown restaurants. The Chocolate Walk runs from noon to 4pm.
