Chocolate, favored beverage of priests across the Spanish empire, will be celebrated at the ruins of the mission church at Tumacácori National Historical Park between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 20th.
Visitors can join friends and neighbors in sampling various sustainably sourced flavored chocolates, practice whipping hot chocolate with a traditional molinillo, learn about the role chocolate played in mission life, and sip a cup of traditional Mexican hot chocolate while touring the mission grounds.
The event supports the "Chocolate and Chilis" chocolate festival in Tubac, celebrating the art and history of chocolate. For more information about related events in Tubac, consult the Tubac Calendar.
