About the Columbus Coffee Festival

The Columbus Coffee Festival was launched in 2016 by Columbus Underground, providing a way to connect local coffee roasters with coffee fans from all over Central Ohio and beyond. Over the years the festival has grown into a two-day extravaganza with over 7,100 in attendance at our 2022 event, featuring over 35 roasters from all throughout the midwest.

The Columbus Coffee Festival is a ticketed event, and each ticketed attendee receives a collectable mug to keep, and all coffee sampling is included with the price of admission. Additional event features include live music, live poetry readings, craft vendors, food trucks and an eclectic mix of entertainment features each year.

Columbus Underground is a locally owned and operated news publication, founded in 2001, that covers a wide variety of topics related to life in Columbus and Central Ohio. Columbus Underground does not feature any type of paywall or subscription for news access, keeping all news articles free for the entire community to read. All proceeds generated by the Columbus Coffee Festival help to fund this local journalism, year-round.

The Columbus Coffee Festival takes place each year at the Ohio Village, a 15 acre site operated by the nonprofit Ohio History Connection, which features over a dozen buildings configured around a historical look at life in Ohio during the 1800s.

The 8th annual Coffee Festival will take place on September 23 and 24, 2023. Stay tuned for updates as the date approaches!
