2020 Hot Cocoa Trail

Thursday, January 9, 2020


Every weekend in February!


Come in from the cold this February with Downtown Barrie's Hot Cocoa Trail!

Now in its 6th year, this February tradition beats the winter blues by showcasing some deliciously unique & creative hot cocoa beverages provided by Downtown Barrie coffee shops, cafés and bistros.

Every Saturday and Sunday during the month of February, head downtown, venture along the Hot Cocoa Trail and indulge in signature cups of hot chocolate while sipping, shopping and supporting local!

With each purchase of a signature Hot Cocoa Trail beverage, fill out a ballot and enter to win one of three Hot Cocoa Trail Vouchers.

This year's event is in support of Seasons Centre for Grieving Children. To find out more about this incredible organization, click here.
