One of the best times to visit Silver City in southwestern New Mexico is around Valentine’s Day, especially during the 12th annual Chocolate Fantasia gala. This year’s gala starts at 12 p.m. on Saturday, February 11, 2012 in Silver City and will last until 4:00 p.m. "Chocolate Stop" maps and empty Valentine boxes ($2.00 each for collecting your chocolates) will be available at Chocolate Fantasia Headquarters at the Silco Theater on Bullard Street. The gourmet chocolates are created locally. During the day the chocolates are judged and awards given out at Isaac’s Restaurant later in the afternoon. All are welcome. See if your favorite chocolate wins.

Silver City residents and visitors from across the country can stroll the Town’s historic streets and visit 30 participating “Chocolate Stops” inside various galleries and shops – many decorated for the occasion. A $20 Sampling Ticket allows you to choose a free gourmet chocolate from 20 of the 30 Chocolate Stops. A delicious way to spend a day! And, this year, we’ve added some fun, family twists including live music, Valentine Roller Derby girls giving out kisses, and our very own Willy Wonka characters greeting visitors.
