where can i park my car?
heads up: parking is extremely limited.
we encourage attendees to use the lynx light rail system (Lenny Boy brewing is located a short, six-minute walk from the new bern station stop), or to utilize a rideshare app such as uber or lyft to get to the festival. if the Lenny Boy parking lot is full, there is limited street parking surrounding the venue.
do i have to be a coffee professional to attend pour?
heck no! the heartbeat of the pour coffee festival is accessibility: everyone is welcome, regardless of their coffee education level. there will be activities attractions at pour that will pique the interests of coffee pros and novices alike. come through, y’all!
what’s the difference between the tickets?
if you purchase a 10 am entry ticket, you’ll be granted access to the festival right when we start at 10am. this means you’ll be able to spend your entire day tasting coffees, sitting in on lectures, and getting geeky with our vendors to your heart’s content.
if you purchase a 12 pm entry ticket, you’ll only be granted entry to the festival starting at 12pm. this means that you can attend lectures and workshops scheduled after noon, and can browse the festival floor to meet vendors and taste their coffees after noon only.
if you purchase a 1 pm entry ticket, you can only access the festival from 1pm-3pm. you’ll be able to sip & savor the coffees from our vendors during this time, and attend any remaining lectures and workshops scheduled durng that time frame.
note: this is a big event, and it’s possible that some of our vendors could sell out of coffee and merchandise before the scheduled end of the festival. if you’ve got your heart set on meeting specific folks or tasting specific coffees, we encourage purchasing earlier-entry tickets.
will you be selling tickets at the door?
last year we sold out of tickets several weeks before the festival began, and it’s very likely that this will happen again. if you’re traveling to pour from out of town or are just very enthusiastic about this event (which you should be!), we highly recommend purchasing your tickets asap.
there is no guarantee that we will be able to sell tickets on the day of the event.
where can i review the schedule of events?
tickets are required for any children between the ages of 10 to 100. if your child is under the age of ten, they’ll be allowed access to pour free-of-charge.
can kids get in for free?
