America's largest chocolate event, The Chocolate Expo, returns to the spectacular Cradle of Aviation Museum -- one of the largest air & space museums in the world -- with a special Holiday Edition of this hugely popular event!
Attendees will get to taste & purchase gourmet chocolates, baked goods, specialty foods, gelato, wines, distilled spirits, hard ciders and much more from approximately 70-100 local, regional and international vendors.
Expo hours are from 10am until 7pm. After the record-setting attendance at our March 2016 event, we are:
1) Adding a second entry point directly into the Museum and adding more scanning devices (including laser scanners) to facilitate a quicker entry process.
2) Creating timed-entry tickets to encourage a more spreadout arrival process throughout the day.
Attendees can come ANYTIME during the day after the time indicated on the tickets they purchased and STAY FOR AS LONG AS THEY LIKE until the event closing time at 7:00pm.
Entry times for tickets are designated for 10 AM, 12 PM, 2 PM and 4 PM, plus we are introducing a "5pm Special" discounted ticket for entry after 5 PM.
Tickets purchased online for The Chocolate Expo are just $15/adult & $10/child (ages 2-12). Tickets purchased at the door (if available) are $20/adult & $15/child (ages 2-12). Children under 2 years old are free at this location.
Our new "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. Most vendors will still have plenty of samples, 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.
Tickets purchased online will be sent to you electronically in a PDF file (attached to an Order Confirmation email), which should arrive seconds after you place your order. If you don't see the email right away in your Inbox, 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 immediately. 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.
Admission tickets for The Chocolate Expo include entry to the Cradle of Aviation's facinating exhibits (reg. $15/adult and $13/child ages 2-12), as well as entry to the Nassau County Firefighters Museum (reg. $5/adult and $4/child).
