Attendees select various chocolate treats at a previous Chocolate Tasting event in Bisbee.

For the 29th year, Friends of the Copper Queen Library will host “Bisbee Chocolate Tasting” from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday at Central School Project in Old Bisbee.

It has become one of Bisbee’s favorite events attended by locals and people from around the area who travel dozens of miles to taste the succulent chocolate creations made in kitchens around the city to benefit the award winning Copper Queen Library.

James Coull said in a press release, “If you’re enjoying all the free programming like the free Library Film Series, the Summer Reading Program and Pre-School STEAM and literacy programs for kids at both the San Jose and Old Bisbee locations, the more than 800 new books and 100 films purchased last year, the new computers with free Wi–Fi, please come to the tasting and contribute so that the Friends of the Library can provide more in the future.”

In addition to the $15 ticket cost to the tasting event, there is a silent auction of items donated by Bisbee’s finest restaurants, shops, accommodations and galleries.

“This year, those who don’t want to taste chocolate, but want to bid on items can enter and browse the entries free of charge,” he added.

The $15 fee gets the ticket holder six samples from a host of all things chocolate. There will be nut-free and gluten-free delights for participants with dietary considerations. Water, beer and wine will be served along with the chocolate, for a suggested donation.

Tickets are available now at the Copper Queen Library or online at Eventbrite. Tickets are also available at the door on the night of the event.
