             Midwest Tea Festival           Returns for Two-Day Event

The Midwest Tea Festival returns to Kansas City for its third annual celebration of tea and tea culture featuring tea tasting, education and vendors September 9-10, 2017. This year, to accommodate the strong interest, the Midwest Tea Festival will be held on two days—Saturday and Sunday.

All ESU Members and Friends of ESU are invited to attend this two-day Festival celebrating everything that tea culture has to offer. 

The Midwest Tea Festival, like other tea festivals across the country, will feature a tea market with local, regional and national tea vendors and tea related arts and other merchandise, educational presentations throughout the day on various tea related topics, focused tasting café sessions with tea merchant experts, and tea tastings all day long. 

The festival is intended to spread the love of tea for health and enjoyment, enhance awareness of cultures in which tea plays a pivotal role and raise the profile of all kinds of tea merchants with Midwestern and specifically Kansas City consumers.

Volunteers Needed: Midwest Tea Fest needs volunteers to help throughout the day. Volunteers work one day and get in the other day for free. No partial days are available. This is your chance to help out and support the Midwest Tea Fest! Click here for details.
