Cincinnati Coffee Festival
October 11 - October 13
Cincinnati Coffee Festival will once again kick off with a trade day on Friday for coffee shop owners, baristas and people interested in getting into the coffee business. Saturday and Sunday will be open to the public, with an even larger variety of local and regional coffee roasters, coffee and tea shops, bakers, pastry shops and chocolatiers on hand to sample their wares. Popular activities such as the Latte Art Throwdown, where baristas vie for the title of top latte artist, and Latte in Action, where attendees can try their hand at creating latte art, will be back this year. Other demonstrations, a live music schedule and additional event details will be announced at a later date.
Now in its third year, Cincinnati Coffee Festival is the Midwest’s largest coffee festival, attracting more than 5,000 attendees as well as vendors from around the region. Activities such as the “Latte Art Throwdown” barista competition, live music and coffee-themed demonstrations make it a can’t-miss event for local coffee lovers.
Cincinnati Coffee Festival is a major fundraiser for Ohio River Foundation, a Cincinnati-based nonprofit with successful programs dedicated to protecting and improving the water quality and ecology of the Ohio River and its watershed. Coffee has a natural connection to that mission.
