    BLVDIA may be a beer festival, but it’s also a family-friendly one.

    Kids under 12 years old will be admitted for free, and, as if I needed to remind you, anyone under 21 years old will not be served alcohol.

    In 2018, Ripple Glass collected over 175 million bottles. The glass is processed in KC and sent to a bottle manufacturer who uses the glass to make new bottles, like Boulevard Brewing Company.

    At BLVDIA we require all food & beer vendors to use recyclable or compostable utensils.

    At BLVDIA 2018, approximately 2,500 bottles were recycled and saved from the landfill.

    Since glass is 100% recyclable, 2,500 recycled bottles = 2,500 new bottles could be made.

    With the help from our citizens, we saved enough energy to operate a TV for 10 days straight!!!

      Good music, good food, and good beers. It can get a little hot out in the sun all day, but there are always shaded areas and water stations.

      Greatly enjoyed the new layout, and love that Kemper Arena (the future HyVee Arena) is still the backdrop for the main stage. It’s such a big part of Kansas City’s history! With their expanded offerings – including a silent disco (what?!) – I would recommend this fest to anyone. It’s even worth it in the hot hot heat!

      Boulevardia in my opinion has established itself as the best Kansas City based music festival and one of the top in the Midwest area. Well worth the trip whether its from states away or down into the West Bottoms.

      The music continues to diversify itself from the “typical festival circuit” grabbing a variety of sounds and established to up and coming acts which get paired with the booming and incredible local music scene in KC.

      The old layout amongst the older buildings was great but much more confined and hard to get to, the newer layout between the shadows of the old Kemper Arena and the historic Stockyards Buildings continued to improve upon their move there in 2017. They could use some more interaction with the established businesses/bars in the area but at least now they allowed them to be used by patrons wandering away from the music.

      If it’s hot, it will be very hot with not much rest from the sun at least from the main stage on asphalt but there’s plenty of other stages and events to keep you entertained in the shade.

      Also, the beer is really good too and there’s been a big ferris wheel that make the backdrop of the fest truly unique to patrons and many of the artists who seem so thankful for performing there. 11/10 would go again.

      In KC, there are few festivals, but this one is fun every year. A good mix of indie, folk, and alternative music is typically the type of music seen here.

      The atmosphere is fun as everyone’s favorite KC brewery has a good selection of beers at a reasonable price. There are lots of food trucks and vendors to check out as well. It does get hot as this is in KC where the summers can be very hot, so drink a lot of water.

      The location in the West Bottoms is a unique one, as it once was one of the largest stockyard urban areas in the US back in the 20th century, but is now making a comeback as a hip area with the renovations of HyVee arena along with several new trendy restaurants and watering holes.

      The people attending the show are very nice and everyone is looking to have a good time here. While a lot of people go for the music, there is plenty to do at this festival as well if looking for something to do on a weekend summer in KC.
