Organizers of SF Coffee Festival Bringing Events to More US Cities


[Editor’s note: This story has been updated. The original version incorrectly stated that there was also a forthcoming Nashville Coffee Festival. A spokesman for the organizers told DCN that the Nashville festival is not currently scheduled.]

This fall, the agency behind the popular San Francisco Coffee Festival is bringing back a second Austin Coffee Festival, as well as the inaugural DC Coffee Festival.

The one-day DC Coffee Festival in Washington D.C. is taking place Saturday, Sept. 30 at Dock 5 at the Union Market complex. Nearly two dozen local coffee roasting companies are currently expected to greet guests with fresh brews and beans.

The second Austin (TX) Coffee Festival is taking place over two days (Sept. 30-Oct. 1) at the Fair Market venue in East Austin, with yet again approximately two dozen local roasting outfits on hand.

The San Francisco Coffee Festival, meanwhile, is scheduled for Nov. 11-12 at the Fort Mason Center for the Arts. It will be the seventh annual San Francisco Coffee Festival, and the event has been a sellout in recent years, according to the organizers.

All three of the consumer-focused coffee shows are produced by the New York-based firm Craft Hospitality LLC. They are not associated with the forthcoming New York Coffee Festival or any of the more industry-oriented Coffee Fest events.

Each of the three Craft coffee events offers full- or half-day pricing, with VIP options for early admissions. Coffee tastings and free live music are part of the ticket package, while each event offers food for sale onsite.
