Saturday the Chocolate Tour returns to downtown Covington. Here’s what you need to know about the county’s sweetest event.

The Chocolate Tour has become a Covington tradition

The eighth annual event will take place on Feb. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the square. The tour is hosted by the Covington Economic Development Corp.


The tour is bigger than ever before

This year there are 31 stops, which means newcomers will join your old favorites! The tour will extend down East Liberty to the Depot District, where One Way Café and Liberty Vintage Marketplace are located, and there will also be vendors at Liberty Hall Event Center between the square and the depot.

Buy your tickets in advance

Advance tickets, which are available at the chamber office and several merchants, are $8 each. Tickets on the day of the event are $10 and can be purchased on the square.

Bring a bag to carry all of your chocolate treats

When you’ve had your fill of chocolate, fill your bag and take the remaining goodies home. With nearly three dozen stops to make throughout the tour, you’re sure to need the extra help. Don’t forget to look around in the shops while you snack.

Visit every store to win a delicious prize

Punch your ticket at each of the participating businesses and enter to win a basket overflowing with goodies. A name will be drawn towards the end of the event. For more information about the event, call the Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce at 901-476-9727.
