We will produce a Chocolate Menu that will appear on the NSA website, on flyers in stores, and handed out during the event. Your listing will include the item, the price, the name of your business, your address, and the hours you will be selling that day. You must be located within the North Shattuck BID District to participate.

We hope you will prepare something unusual and fun, have a chocolate item specially made and prepackaged as a promotional item for your non-food business, or decorate your windows with brown & white for the Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival.
