Lovers of local coffee and pastries rejoice. Raleigh Roasts is making its way back to the City of Raleigh Museum — 220 Fayetteville St.  —  on Sat., Jan. 22 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. ☕

It’s been a while… What’s this event again? 

Hosted by the Friends of the City of Raleigh Museum, Raleigh Roasts brings people to the City of Raleigh Museum to taste coffee, tea, and treats from local vendors. In 2019, the event brought in over 800 visitors.  

What local vendors will be attending this year?

  • Slingshot Coffee | Local shop that specializes in organic cold brews, nitro flash brews, and coffee sodas. 
  • Larry’s Coffee | An organic, fair trade, B-corp local coffee company. 
  • Benelux Coffee | Bringing a little piece of the Benelux countries to Raleigh through fresh coffee and belgian waffles.
  • Pine State Coffee | Specialty coffee roaster.
  • 321 Roasters | A local shop that employs over 30 adults with intellectual + developmental disabilities.
  • Blackology | Local company that cultivates a love of black coffee through community, education, and relationships.

How will Raleigh Roasts be different this year?

This year, there will be no walk-up line and tickets must be purchased in advance. A ticket will allow you to attend the event for 45 minutes, and there will be no extension on your time if you arrive late. Pro Tip: Show up a few minutes before your scheduled time to make sure you get to maximize your Raleigh Roasts experience. 

How much are tickets?

General public tickets are $7.50 + member tickets are $5. Due to Eventbrite fees, Raleigh Roasts cannot refund tickets. Get your tickets here.

I’m a member of the museum. What’s in it for me?

Members can gain entry to an early access VIP hour 9-9:45 a.m. that will include additional vendors + goodies not available during other hours of Raleigh Roast.
