I t is a city where you can fill your days with ac­tiv­i­ties that will en­ter­tain every­one in the fam­ily but there is one time of the year when Dunedin truly comes alive. The sec­ond week of the July school hol­i­days sees the an­nual Dunedin Cad­bury Choco­late Carnival tak­ing place. This year sees the carnival cel­e­brat­ing its 16th year – and it is set to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever. The carnival, held this year from Satur­day, July 16 to Fri­day, July 22, will host more than 60 events over seven days with the aim to raise as much money for char­ity as pos­si­ble and have as much fun as we can while we do it. This year the carnival prom­ises to de­liver an ex­cit­ing line-up of ir­re­sistible choco­late events. With ev­ery­thing from choco­late paint­ing, choco­late dec­o­rat­ing and chil­dren’s theatre to choco­late fa­cials, cou­ture and a de­gus­ta­tion menu that will leave you sali­vat­ing, there is some­thing for every­one. An evening of fun with friends and fash­ion with foil, the 2016 Cad­bury Cou­ture is sure to be a spec­tac­u­lar night with wear­able art en­tries in­spired by na­tional fash­ions at play from around the world. Bring the fam­ily down to Dunedin’s Oc­tagon on July 16, for the carnival open­ing and have a go at all the dif­fer­ent sports and games (for all abil­i­ties and ages). There’s choco­late for every­one and medals for the win­ners.

There will be ven­dors with food from around the world and free en­ter­tain­ment. There will be a spec­tac­u­lar fire­works dis­play at 5.30pm. The Cad­bury Café Paint’n’Sip is a chance to tap into your in­ner creativ­ity. Grab your friends and have a fun and cre­ative evening while a pro­fes­sional artist guides you step-by-step to cre­ate the fea­tured paint­ing of the night. You also get to take your com­pleted mas­ter­piece home with you. The carnival will bring the joy for the en­tire week and will cul­mi­nate with our an­nual Jaffa race. Join us and re­cip­i­ent charities Make A Wish NZ, Surf Life Sav­ing NZ and Par­ents Cen­tre NZ as we roll three races of up to 25,000 Jaf­fas down Bald­win Street, the steep­est street in the world! This is truly a sight not to be missed. The Dunedin Cad­bury Choco­late Carnival cel­e­brates win­ter with choco­late in Dunedin and show­cases great events that ap­peal to peo­ple of all ages, with some­thing for every­one to en­joy. Be sure to book early for some of our tick­eted events to avoid dis­ap­point­ment. We look for­ward to see­ing you here in July!
