No Filter Coffee Fest is making a comeback with a new name after a two-year hiatus.

What’s happening: The festival, previously known as POUR Coffee Festival, heads to Camp North End on Sept. 25.

Why it matters: Events are back and the 2018 and 2019 festivals sold out. Plus it’s a coffee lover’s dream.

What to expect: While coffee is the focal point, the festival will also feature tea purveyors, local food artisans and more than three dozen vendors. Entry includes unlimited samplings.

  • Plus there will be workshops and discussions curated by Talk Coffee to Me’s Brianna Berry, a Charleston-based coffee educator.
  • The festival will also feature local DJ, That Guy Smitty.

Details: The festival will run from 10am until 3pm in Camp North End’s Ford Building. VIP entry begins at 9am.

  • Tickets start at $25 and go on sale on June 20 at 9am.
  • Of note: This is the first time they will offer VIP tickets, which will include a tote filled with swag and a bag of coffee from a presenting roaster.

Backstory: The festival was founded in 2017 by Diana Mnatsakanyan-Sapp and Matt Dudley

What they’re saying: “The goal of No Filter has always been to bridge the gap between specialty coffee professionals and the coffee-loving public,” Mnatsakanyan-Sapp said in a statement.

Between the lines: The Ford Building has become a prime space for festivals and exhibits in recent years, hosting the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit and IDEAworks, a Crayola experience.
