Everything You Need To Know About Boulevardia

People generally need three things to survive: food, water and shelter. Alternatively, it could probably be done with food, beer and live music. And that’s perfect, because that’s exactly what Boulevardia has to offer. 


The two-day, nonprofit street festival is kicking off on Friday and rolling all the way through Saturday at the Stockyards District. There’s almost too much to do; sample beer from across the globe, wolf down bites from local Kansas City restaurants and food trucks, dance the night away at the Silent Disco (or observe the silent disco from afar – probably just as amusing), shop until you drop, or take in the sounds of bands from both the local and national level. And then go back for more the next day!

Need some guidance? The Boulevardia app is the key to planning out the weekend perfectly. It has the basics like a beer and food list, band schedule and festival news, but also includes some unique features like a map to every “pint of interest,” a journal for your beer-tasting adventures, and, most unique of all, the Boulevardia Treasure Hunt.

A treasure hunt, you say? Indeed, with a chance to win some great, mostly beer-related prizes awaiting those who finish strong. The Boulevardia Treasure hunt challenges festival-goers to really get to know the festival by completing tasks, meeting the people who bring Boulevardia to life, and answering festival-centric trivia questions. If you really want to dive deep into the weekend, this is assuredly the best way to do it. 

Between treasure hunts and tasting journals, everyone’s going to experience the festival in a different way. Maybe you want to be the first one to finish the hunt and declare yourself the victor over other fest attendees. Maybe you’re determined to try a beer from every region available, like Missouri, Texas, Wisconsin or even Belgium. Maybe you’d rather sit in the warm summer air with a cold brew listening to bands like Manchester Orchestra and Bleachers. Or maybe you just want to head down to the Stockyards District with some friends and celebrate a good weekend. Whatever the case may be, Boulevardia has what you’re looking for.
