Lititz Chocolate Walk is like trick or treating for all ages!
Each year on the Saturday before Columbus Day, chocoholics converge on Lititz, Pennsylvania for a day of chocolate bliss! With more than 25 locations, participants tour the shops in downtown Lititz in search of mouth-watering chocolate treats. With samples donated from some of the region’s top chefs, bakers, ice cream shops and candy makers, Lititz Chocolate Walkers literally eat their way across town! All the money raised from ticket sales goes to support children-focused charities in the Lancaster County region.
In the first 15 years, the Lititz Chocolate Walk has raised over $400,000 in support of these charities. It is through the generosity of our sponsors and chocolate artists, along with a combined total of about 20,000 chocolate walkers, that this has been accomplished.
Over the years, Lititz Chocolate Walkers have traveled from across the USA to partake in this unique chocolate festival. Friends and families gather together to do the walk, buses come from other states packed with anxious chocoholics and local chocolate lovers wait anxiously to experience the joy of Lititz at its finest. Some groups even create their own tee-shirts for the Walk and you can see them moving together from stop-to-stop.
Someone many years ago created the phrase, “Trick or treating for adults” as a way to describe the Lititz Chocolate Walk (although all ages are welcome). Each stop has their own treat but there are no tricks to this day; instead, simply a pleasant stroll around our quaint town, enjoying chocolate from local artisans. **Please note** Many locations are not accessible for our friends with disabilities
