YKA Hot Chocolate Festival -  February 2024!

For the entire month of February 2024, participating cafés and restaurants will offer a signature hot chocolate drink for you to sample.  They'll compete for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze titles for YKA's Best Hot Chocolate 2024.

These delicious concoctions will warm your belly and your heart, knowing that $1-3 from each drink helps the Mount Paul Community Food Centre (CFC) reach even more community members.

You can learn more about the CFC and our diverse, programs here.

How it works!

Choose a hot chocolate from our list of vendors, get yourself out to their location to make your purchase, download the app to your phone, and then rate the drink to help us decide who will be crowned YKA’s Best Hot Chocolate! You can rate as many different drinks as you can try. We challenge you to try them all.

Each unique drink you vote for gives you a chance to win prizes throughout the festival. Multiple votes for the same drink will count as only one vote/prize entry
