Here's what we had to say about the festival in Best of NH:
Combination for a Festival: How sweet it is, a lazy summer night filled with jazz and covered in chocolate! August 7th marks the 11th annual Waterville Valley's Chocolate and Jazz Festival on Waterville's town green. Before, during and after the free concert, local chefs will be selling their favorite chocolate desserts by the serving so be sure to save room, you won't be able to resist several. And there will be palate cleansers of sorts: Head across the town square to Jugtown Country Store for a wine tasting. Jazz, chocolate and wine are a winning combination when it comes to the perfect summer night under the stars. The resort area is brimful of other activities if you wish to make a weekend affair of it.
