Sixth Annual Cincinnati Coffee Festival Returns to Music Hall October 21-22

Tickets to go on sale this summer; proceeds benefit Cincinnati non-profit Ohio River Foundation

The Cincinnati Coffee Festival is returning to the beautiful ballroom at Cincinnati Music Hall this fall. The popular annual festival is set to take place Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22. The Cincinnati Coffee Festival team is also pleased to announce their 2023 poster winner Amy Panfalone.

Thousands turn out each year to experience popular coffee roasters, tea providers, bakers, pastry shops, chocolatiers, and live music at what has become the Midwest’s premier coffee event. Cincinnati Coffee Festival is a major fundraiser for Ohio River Foundation (ORF), a Cincinnati-based non-profit with successful programs dedicated to protecting and improving the water quality and ecology of the Ohio River and its watershed.

The Ohio River Watershed stretches across 200,000 square miles, 14 states, and is home to more than 25 million people. ORF is the only regional conservation organization working to protect and improve the ecology of the Ohio River and its rivers and streams. Coffee has a natural connection to that mission. Without great water, you can’t have great coffee.

The Cincinnati Coffee Festival is open to the public and will have a large variety of local and regional coffee roasters in attendance such as local favorites Seven Hills Coffee, Deeper Roots Coffee, Viva Coffee Roasters, and Carabello as well as two-time People’s Choice Award winner FigBrew.

Features will include the always-popular Latte Art Throwdown, and 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 over the coming months. Tickets will go on sale in the summer.
