Boulevardia Announces Brewery Lineup for 2020 Taps & Tastes Beer and Food Sampling Experience

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Organizers of Boulevardia, the two-day Kansas City urban street festival, are excited to announce the brewery lineup for its “Taps & Tastes” event on Saturday, June 20, inside the Crown Center Exhibition Hall. Tickets for the highly anticipated beer and food sampling experience go on sale at 10 a.m. CST Tuesday, Feb. 25, along with other festival ticket packages.

This year, Taps & Tastes starts at 2 p.m. so attendees can enjoy all the music performances at the festival Saturday evening. The new location at the Crown Center Exhibition Hall makes it easy for attendees to stay at one of two on-site hotels and go to and from the festival. Taps & Tastes will also feature a DJ and a host to keep the festival atmosphere flowing. In addition, more than 15 local restaurants will make up the food lineup with bites ranging from savory to sweet. Additional details about participating restaurants will be announced in the coming months.

Two ticket packages are available for Taps & Tastes: general admission, at $75 for access from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. or, early admission, at $115 for access from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Both ticket packages include unlimited beer and food sampling, a keepsake tasting glass, and general admission to Boulevardia that day.
