We are now offering "timed-ticket" entry at this location to help ensure a smoother flow of guests throughout the day. Please come during the time designated on your tickets, as priority entry will be given to those ticket holders, and this entry procedure will enhance the experience for everyone!

A limited number of "VIP Tickets" will be also available online-only for $35 each (all ages, 2 and up) through March 1st or whenever ticket are sold out. VIP Tickets offer priority admission at anytime during the day and include one deluxe insulated Chocolate Expo shopping bag (reg. $10) and a Chocolate Expo chocolate spa bar (a $6/bar value). A portion of the proceeds from each VIP sale goes to the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Long Island Cares.

Our "5PM Special" discounted tickets are available online only for just $10/person (all ages 2 and above) for the last two hours of the Expo between 5 and 7pm when crowds are typically smaller and the atmosphere is more relaxed. At the door, the 5PM Special tickets are priced at $15/person.

Most vendors will still have plenty of samples after 5PM, and plenty of products are typically available for purchase during this later part of the day.

Please note that "5PM Special" ticket holders will NOT be admitted before 5pm. Also note that all tickets are sold on a non-refundable basis.

Tickets purchased online will be sent to you electronically in a PDF file (attached to an Order Confirmation email), which should arrive in your Inbox IMMEDIATELY after you place your order. If you don't see the email right away, it may have been put in a junk email folder by your mail server, so be sure to check there, as well, if you don't get your tickets right away. Print out these tickets and bring them with you to The Chocolate Expo.

You may also purchase tickets on your mobile device using the Eventbrite App. We can scan your ticket barcode directly from your phone or tablet.

Parking: There is plenty of free parking in front of the Cradle of Aviation.
