Tea Festivals

Hello Tea Friends,

Hope you are enjoying the beginnings of autumn-like weather or surviving 106 degree temperatures as we had last week. I'm so looking forward to cooler days and nights.

Saturday morning I woke up early, walked my dog and sat down with the latest Tea Time Magazine (I've been saving it) and became quite excited to learn about all of the upcoming Tea Festivals. What a great combination: travel and tea! 
I've never been to a tea festival before and would love to hear from any of you that have.

Are you planning to attend any of these festivals? 

Have you attended any of these festivals in the past?

How fun would it be for a group to meet at one of these festivals!


Here are some upcoming scheduled Tea Festivals and their links:

SF Tea Festival ~ September 27
Ferry Building -San Francisco, California

Northwest Tea Festival ~ October 3 & 4
Fisher Pavilion - Seattle, Washington

Coffee and Tea Festival Philly ~ November 7 & 8
Greater Philadelphia Expo Center - Green Oaks, Pennsylvania

Vancouver Tea Festival ~ November 21 & 22
Croatian Cultural Centre - Vancouver, British Columbia

Los Angeles international Tea Festival ~ December 19 & 20
Japanese American National Museum ~ Los Angeles, California

I was hoping to attend the NW Tea Festival in Seattle but I have a training to attend for work. The National Shelley China Club is having their national conference in Seattle on the same weekend.
I would love to attend the Vancouver Tea Festival...Vancouver is one of my favorite cities.


  1. Hi Nora: I love reading that same magazine, I look forward to getting it. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

  2. I have never heard of a tea festival, if you go to one of them you'll have to let us know all about it. Enjoy your day,


  3. A tea festival would be a great venue to meet up with like minded tea lovers Nora!
    We don't get that tea magazine over here, but Judith of Lavender Cottage Gardening sent me one last year and I loved it.
    Enjoy your Autumn days.

  4. A Tea festival sounds wonderful! Unfortunately none of these are anywhere near me !

  5. Wow, the west coast sure loves tea! I attended my first tea festival last year and loved it! I've already marked Jan 30-31 2016 in my calendar for the Toronto Tea Festival!

  6. I agree with you Nora, attending a tea festival would be such fun! I have that Tea Time magazine and received a subscription as a gift from my sister.

  7. Nora:
    I am in a face book group you might enjoy. It is called "Afternoon Tea Cross America" and is open to anyone interested in tea. If you are on face book - you just type that in the search box. Then you click that you are interested in joining. We just chat all about tea and many bloggers, tea room owners, tea shop owners, etc are in the group. So glad you shared and linked about the tea festivals!

  8. Hi Nora,
    The teapot on the cover of Tea Time is stunning, isn't it? I have never attended a tea festival. They have never had one here that I know of. It would surely be fun to meet up with like-minded friends. I think there are more coffee drinkers than tea drinkers here on the Island. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.


  9. Hi Nora,
    Wow! That would be fun to meet up at a Tea Festival. I have never been to one and would be able to attend the one in Vancouver. Seattle is not too far from my home too but that is my son's birthday and he will be 30 so I can't commit to that one. I never even knew Vancouver had such a thing. Thank you for telling me about it. Happy Tea Day and Have a Wonderful Week! Karen

  10. I'll be at the Northwest Tea Festival in Seattle! I'm teaching a class on How to Be a Guest at the Japanese Tea Ceremony. I hope folks can come by and say hello!

  11. Hi sweet friend! Oh, what fun it would be to attend one of these festivals, but alas I cannot :) Thank you for sharing this wonderful post with Roses of Inspiration. Have a lovely week! Hugs!

  12. This place has the most perfect environment for whatever fun activity you are looking for. If you want a low key and more intimate atmosphere, come and hang out here. If you want the party scene, weekends at this event space Chicago are where it's at!
