After selling out last year’s event, the 2019 San Francisco Coffee Festival moves to the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture Festival Pavilion. Taking place November 2–3, the festival hosts an expanded lineup of more than 80 specially curated exhibitors, including the Bay Area’s top coffee roasters, for a uniquely immersive coffee experience.
New this year, the festival will present Coffee Convos, specially curated panel talks where attendees can learn about coffee inside and out, from technical skills to business operations. Also part of the festival are live performances from California-based acts Spooky Mansion, Anchor & Bear, Little Monarch, and more, as well as on-site exhibitions and activations, including local artist Jarold Cadion, who will be making art out of coffee grounds, and non-profit body positivity organization Movemeant Foundation, which will lead a workshop with Dailey Method. Additional exhibitors include Brew Dr Kombucha, Topo Chico, Coffee Manufactory, Boba Guys, Boot Coffee Campus, SAKU tea, and many more.
Attendees who get hungry throughout the weekend’s activities will have a variety of food options to choose from, including Third Culture Bakery, Sam Choy’s Poke, The Grilledcheezguy, and House of Bagels.
“We are thrilled with how 2019’s San Francisco Coffee Festival is coming together,” says founder Sam Gelin. “There is so much more to be announced and we look forward to an even bigger, better coffee festival this year.”
Tickets are available now and range from $29–240 (free for children under 13). For more information, and to see the full list of exhibiting roasters, visit the San Francisco Coffee Festival’s website.
