Eclipse Chocolate’s highly anticipated Annual Cupcake Extravaganza, now in its eleventh year, will return to the South Park confectionary-restaurant takes place from late June through Sunday, July 8. During this ten-day event, San Diegans can experience 24 limited-time flavors created by Eclipse’s founder and Food Network’s “Guy’s Grocery Games” winner Will Gustwiller while delighting in a pop-up baby goat petting zoo and prizes including free gourmet cupcakes for a year.

Each box purchased is an entry to win “A Year of Cupcakes,” 365 cupcakes valued at $1,400 and redeemable as 41 boxes of nine during the 2018-2019 season. The winner is drawn on the final day of the event, Sunday, July 8 at 2 p.m.
