The Festival, devoted to sweet treats, takes place in April every year. For the festival, producers of chocolate and various other chocolate desserts and chocolate dishes, from across Slovenia congregate in the town of Radovljica. Additionally, various presentations and workshops as well as cooking and cocktail shows, take place in Radovljica’s Old Town and the Radovljica Mansion.

Chocolate has been present for a long time in this area. The Radol'ca region is home to one of the first, and currently the most renowned chocolate brand in Slovenia. In 1922, Slovene industrialist Adolf Zavrtanik, from Trieste, established a family-owned chocolate production company in the town of Lesce, which subsequently gained recognition with the Gorenjka trademark. It was on the 90th anniversary of Gorenjka that the first Chocolate Festival was organised in the town of Radovljica. Apart from Gorenjka, the family-run chocolate shop Molinet can be found in the region of Radol'ca.
