The Fourth Cincinnati Coffee Festival takes over Music Hall this weekend.
Labeled “the largest coffee and tea festival in the Midwest,” this year’s event will be divided into five sessions (9 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday; 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Sunday) to help limit overcrowding.
The festival will feature 50 coffee and tea roasters, bakers, pastry shops and chocolate makers, according to a statement, as well as coffee and tea vendors. Guests will enjoy sips and snacks while enjoying live music and fun events such as latte art demonstrations.
A special “Platinum Buzz” VIP event on Friday includes coffee and tea cocktails, a latte art competition and local food.
“After being unable to host the Cincinnati Coffee Festival in 2020 due to COVID, we are excited to prepare for this year’s event,” said Rich Cogen, executive director of the Ohio River Foundation (ORF) , which produces the event, in one output. “With the addition of our Friday night pre-party and our new session format for Saturday and Sunday, attendees are ready for the best festival yet.”
Proceeds benefit the Ohio River Foundation, which focuses on improving and maintaining the quality of the Ohio River and its watershed.
“You can’t have good coffee without good water,” Cogen continued in the release.
