Deliciously Delightful "Tour by Chocolate"

Evening Event on May 12
Walking Tour Offers Unique Mother's Day Weekend Experience

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - In partnership with California State Parks and Sutter's Fort State Historic Park, Friends of Sutter's Fort is excited to present a delicious and all-new "Tour by Chocolate" event on Saturday evening, May 12, 2018 at 6 p.m. Fort visitors who participate in this inaugural walking tour will learn about the fascinating history of Sutter's Fort and its interesting connections to chocolate, such as how it was used for medicinal purposes, the role it played in the Donner Party rescue, and more.

During the 45-minute walking tour, knowledgeable Fort staff, volunteers and docents will lead guests through five to six rooms to learn interesting nuggets about the Fort while sampling chocolates, many of which are locally made and graciously provided by amazing Northern California chocolatiers and candy companies such as Ginger Elizabeth, Tombo Toffee and Z Cioccolato. At the end of the tantalizing tour, guests will be treated to a slice of chocolate cake along with other tasty sweets.

All proceeds from this rare evening event will support the ongoing efforts of the Friends of Sutter's Fort, a nonprofit 501 c 3 organization who works every day to provide critical funding for the educational programming, and restoration efforts at Sutter's Fort State Historic Park.
