Columbus Coffee Festival

September 23, 2023 @ 9:00 am - September 24, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Columbus Coffee Festival 2023

The 8th annual Columbus Coffee Festival will be held on September 23rd and 24th, 2023, at The Ohio Village. This event features dozens of the Midwest’s finest coffees and Ohio’s best roasters!

About The Columbus Coffee Festival

In 2016, Columbus Underground created a local gathering for local roasters and coffee aficionados. This modest gathering has since evolved into a two-day coffee fiesta. Fast forward to last year, and this and the Columbus Coffee Festival has attracted over 7,000 attendees and 35 of the Midwest’s finest roasters. 

Attendees are gifted a signature mug – a memento of the day’s adventures. As you cradle it, you are invited to journey from roaster to roaster, each offering a unique blend to sample. Each sample ranges from 3-4 ounces each.

But there’s so much more than sipping coffee!

Every corner of the festival is alive with music, poetry, and a parade of food trucks and artisan stalls that beckon you to explore. Starlit Ways, Emma Webb, Brianna O’Dell, Molly Winters, and Imber Solis are this year’s line-up of local musicians ready to entertain you.
