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 8,500 in attendance at our 2023 event, featuring over 40 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 by Walker Evans and Anne Evans — which 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 9th annual Coffee Festival will take place in Fall 2024! Stay tuned for updates as the date approaches!
