The annual Athens Main Street Chocolate Walk returns to downtown Athens on February 6 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The self-guided event will start at the Athens Main Street office, located at 107 North Jefferson Street, where walkers will pick up their pre-paid ticket(s), a map to participating businesses, and their bag to collect their chocolate goodies.
Only 300 tickets will be sold for this popular event. Tickets will go on sale Monday, January 18 at noon and can ONLY be purchased online through Eventbrite. Tickets are $6 (plus processing fee). This event serves as a fundraiser for Athens Main Street. All of the chocolate on the walk has been donated by the participating downtown businesses. Ticket holders visiting all the participating businesses can be entered to win $25 ‘Love Bucks’ redeemable at any of the participating businesses.
Athens Main Street Executive Director Tere Richardson encourages everyone, with or without a ticket, to come downtown to get their loved one something for Valentine’s Day.
“In addition to delicious chocolate treats, participating businesses are planning to offer sweet deals, sure to delight shoppers,” said Richardson.
Businesses will be following and encouraging patrons to follow all COVID-19 guidelines including the wearing of masks and physical distancing.
Last year, tickets sold out within 48 hours of release. Be sure to get yours early! Don’t forget that tickets go on sale Monday, January 18.
All my best,
