Your Guide to the Chocolate Festival at Morris Museum

 Mark your calendar for the sweetest weekend of the year. The Morris Museum’s Chocolate Festival is coming back this February with unique chocolate-themed attractions perfect for people of all ages.

If you’re a chocolate lover around Butler, Kinnelon, or Bloomingdale, you won’t want to miss this indulgent extravaganza. Check out our guide for everything you need to know about this year’s Chocolate Festival.

What is the Morris Museum’s Chocolate Festival?

With a wide variety of chocolate-inspired activities, the Chocolate Festival is one of the most highly anticipated events that the Morris Museum holds each year.

This year’s schedule will feature several satisfying activities, including chocolate-themed games, chocolate bingo, and hot cocoa crafts. Patrons can even meet a chocolatier, design their own chocolate bar wrappers, or enjoy a Touch the Music performance. With so many unique activities, the Chocolate Festival never fails to entertain families from Butler, Bloomingdale, and Kinnelon.

What’s Happening at the Children’s Theatre?

This year’s festival also includes performances of Miss Nelson Is Missing at 11 am and 1:30 pm. Based on a popular children’s book by Harry Allard, Miss Nelson Is Missing is sure to delight young audiences between the ages of 3 and 9 during this year’s Chocolate Festival.

Miss Nelson, who has a hard time controlling her classroom, disappears right before a big test is scheduled. When the no-nonsense substitute Viola Swamp takes over, Miss Nelson’s kids realize how much they need her and will do anything they can to get her back.

The lively cast, colorful costumes, and vibrant set bring this classic children’s story to life, especially with its humorous, engaging script. Witty and lighthearted, Miss Nelson Is Missing is a must-see production for families with kids during the Chocolate Festival.
