WHAT IS THE WILMINGTON COFFEE FEST?
“We invite coffee enthusiasts, tea lovers and sweet treat admirers for a shared experience to educate and link like minded individuals on our industries craft. Let’s recognize a ritual that is part of our daily lives and create new stories through a family, friendly, cultural experience.”
As baristas, roasters, bakers, brewers and artisans, we have a goal to share our passions and build relationships in our vibrant community.
The past two years we hosted the "Wilmington Coffee Crawl". We have taken the best parts of the crawl and are keeping it centralized at the Hannah Block Community Arts Center and Waterline Brewery. This exciting new festival will bring all our neighborhood coffee shops along with local and regional roasters, industry vendors, artisans, music and more to our community. While showcasing what our rising craft coffee scene has to offer people will be immersed in a festival of all things coffee.
With over 2,500 attendees last year, an active social media presence, and features in local papers, news outlets and community event pages, we hope you’ll join our team for 2020!
