Boulevardia Returns June 16-17, Moves to Stockyards District

   Boulevardia, Kansas City’s annual urban street festival, has moved to the Stockyards District, just south of the former location in West Bottoms.

  “The Stockyards District gives us a chance to keep the festival fresh and provide festival attendees the chance to experience Boulevardia on a different Kansas City backdrop,” Marco Vergara, president of Boulevardia, said in a press release.

  The festival will take place on Friday, June 16 and Saturday, June 17. For the past three years, Boulevardia was a three-day event, but this year, Boulevardia wanted to “give that Sunday off to all the dads who volunteer tirelessly to make Boulevardia the go-to destination it has become.”

   The street festival will feature craft beer tastings and food samplings. Boulevardia’s creators are also working on the music lineup that will include local, regional and national acts. Along with food and music, family activities, entertainment, shopping and eco-education booths will be set up.
