The Galesburg Historical Society announced Tuesday that the annual Galesburg Chocolate Festival will be moving to a new venue, according to the Register-Mail.

In past years the festival has been held on the third floor of the Galesburg Antiques Mall Co., but starting in 2015 will be held at 156 E. Main St., next to Azer Medical Supply. The new location has a full banquet room and kitchen.

The Chocolate Festival is a popular event for Galesburg residents and Knox students and attracted 900 visitors in 2014. In 2015, the event will be held on Valentine’s Day weekend, Feb. 14 and 15.
