Cincinnati Coffee Festival returns to Music Hall Sept. 12-13

CINCINNATI, OHIO (February 19, 2020) – The fourth annual Cincinnati Coffee Festival returns to Music Hall in 2020! The largest coffee festival in the Midwest will be held in the beautiful ballroom at Cincinnati Music Hall, 1241 Elm St. in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati. It’s set to take place Saturday, Sept. 12 and Sunday, Sept. 13.

“The Cincinnati Coffee Festival is our signature fundraising event attended by thousands of coffee, tea, chocolate and baked goods enthusiasts,” said Rich Cogen, executive director of Ohio River Foundation (ORF), which produces the event. “We look forward to putting on a wonderful event again at Music Hall helping support the local coffee community and raising funds for our conservation work in the region.”

The Cincinnati Coffee Festival is open to the public with a large variety of local and regional coffee roasters, coffee and tea shops, bakers, pastry shops and chocolatiers on hand to sample their wares. Popular features include Latte Art in Action, where attendees can watch a master barista create latte art and learn how to pour their own. Demonstrations and presentations from industry experts, a “cupping” station – where guests can learn to sample coffee like a pro – and live music will also again be featured. Additional event details will be announced at a later date.

Vendor applications are available at the Cincinnati Coffee Festival Website. Session tickets will go on sale in May.

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.

“After all, without great water, you can’t have great coffee,” Cogen said.
