Community Connections

Local Events: Every year Hamilton, NY hosts a variety of events such as the Great Chocolate Train Festival to commemorates the night of Sept. 27, 1955 when a train containing Nestle™ chocolate crashed in town. Luckily, no one was injured, so the townsfolk could celebrate their own sweet fortune. As the hometown chocolate shop, Maxwells is always a sponsor of this FREE family event. Make sure to stop by the store for chocolate demonstrations and samples!

Our Own Events: We always love a good party, and what’s better than having a party at everyone’s favorite place—Maxwells? We can’t think of anything better than that! What great times we’ve had hosting events like our “Christmas in CandyLand” in December. We loved seeing all of our little friends visit with Mrs. Claus and decorate festive cookies at the store. Everyone did an amazing job with their edible creations! We will look forward to more fun events at the store soon.

Donations: Reaching out to the wider community, Maxwells regularly supports regional charities throughout the year. From sponsoring the Hamilton Theater’s Free Children’s Movie and Hamilton Hospital fundraisers to donating chocolates or gift cards for Colgate’s Sports Boosters and local High Schools’ After Prom Parties, we believe it is important to give back in a meaningful way. Maxwells also gives free cones to first time library card holders when they get a card at the Hamilton Public Library.
