Sweet Valentine’s celebrations in more ways than one

February 11, 2014 by  

The Sweetheart Colorado Indulgence Festival will let local couples enjoy the weekend with a huge selection of chocolate and other sweet treats.

A sampling cup is available to be used throughout the afternoon to be picked up just outside the entrance location.

While at this festival, guests will enjoy cookies, microbrews, champagne, wines, and of course, chocolates. Samples are available of specialty cheeses, delicious truffles, tasty fudges, some frozen confections, chocolate caramel martinis, a selection of savory cordials, and other sweet morsels.

This afternoon is people aged over 21 and valid photo ID may be required. Cocktails, in a limited amount, as well as a tended coat check are located near the registration table. Admittance stamps are required before entering the ballroom, although they allow guests to leave and return throughout the afternoon.

VIP tickets cost $100 per person, while general admission costs $70 per person. Couples admission is $120 or $170 for the VIP option. All tickets must be purchased in advance.

The festival will be happening on Sunday, February 16, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Antlers Hilton located at 4 South Cascade Avenue in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Please note that the last call for alcoholic beverages is 3:30pm. To learn more, please visit the Indulgence Festival website.

As well as being enjoyable for couples, Valentine’s Day helps out local businesses like print companies, who may benefit from an increased demand for cards.
