The Chocolate Walk honors the memory of the late Ellen Vetter, a founder of Main Street Portsmouth In Bloom [MSPIB].

Ellen owned the B Sweete Chocolaterie, a luxury chocolate boutique on Second Street in Portsmouth.  Ellen was invested in the success of the Downtown area and played a major role in the creation of MSPIB's award-winning Design Committee.

The Chocolate Walk is a Valentine's Day tradition showcasing MSPIB's love for Downtown Businesses.  Over 30 Venues offer chocolate treats in an endless variety of forms.

The 2024 Ellen Vetter Memorial Chocolate Walk will be held on February 10 from 11:00am-4pm.  Join us at dozens of walking and driving stops eager to spread the love of Portsmouth, Ohio!
