Anderson's Candy Shop's 100th Anniversary Party!

Anderson's Candy Shop will celebrate its 100th anniversary Saturday, June 29 & Sunday, June 30 in Richmond, IL. The celebration will be part of a two-day Chocolate Fest in the Village of Richmond that will include live music, free BINGO, a pancake breakfast, a community church service, chocolate themed biergarten, historical displays, free mini donuts, bounce house for kids and more! Even the local Conservation District is getting in the celebratory spirit with a special scavenger hunt through Glacial Park over the anniversary weekend! Anderson's Candy Shop, now in its fourth generation, was founded in Chicago in 1919 and moved to Richmond in Northern McHenry County in 1926. The shop has been located at 10301 N. Main Street since before Route 12 was paved. Anderson's Candy Shop is famous for its handmade chocolates – from their English toffee and Molasses Sponge to their Marshmallow and Buttercreams, each piece is taken from scratch to finish in the shop along Main Street. Just as making quality candy is a fourth-generation tradition in the Anderson family, giving and enjoying Anderson's has become a multi-generation tradition for thousands of others all over the country. The part starts each day at 9 a.m. with events Saturday running until 9 p.m. and Sunday until 5 p.m. On Sunday, June 30 all are invited to join the Anderson family and staff to sing "Happy Birthday" and share a giant cake during a ceremony on the lawn at 11 a.m. For more information about the event or the Anderson's history, contact Katie Anderson-Tedder at More info is also available on Facebook:
