Boulevardia announces several ticket packages and pricing for this year’s festival


Details are beginning to trickle in on this year’s Boulevardia festival during Father’s Day weekend (June 19-21) in the West Bottoms.

For craft-beer lovers, Taps & Tastes will return, and there’s a VIP ticket package this year with an added hour of festival time.  

Here’s what we know so far in regard to ticket packages:

General admission: The cheapest route in is a $15 single-day pass to the three-day festival. Kids 12 and younger get in free.

Taps & Tastes ticket: Just like last year, it’s a $75 pass to the fest that will feature more than 40 national and international craft breweries from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday. Also, KC chefs will serve food to snack on. You get unlimited beer and food samples (while they last) and a tasting glass. Look for a list of breweries next month. This year’s Taps & Tastes will not be on the 12th Street bridge, but organizers say it’ll stay in the “general vicinity” of the festival. You gotta be 21 or older.

Taps & Tastes VIP ticket: For $100, you get into the festival at 3 p.m. You gotta be 21 or older.

The Buzz and Sporting Kansas City VIP ticket: The $65 single-day pass (Friday or Saturday) gets you into the fest, three beer tickets, access to a private space on the 12th Street bridge with a view of the festival stages, exclusive performances, giveaways, complimentary water, a private bar and restroom. You gotta be 21 or older.

Father’s Day Beer & BBQ Brunch: This $65 Sunday pass includes a barbecue-inspired brunch on the 12th Street bridge on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Ride to Boulevardia: This Saturday-morning bike ride starts and ends on the Boulevardia grounds. The 15-, 30-, 60- or 100-mile ride costs $40-$50, depending on the length of the ride and early-bird pricing. You get a T-shirt, swag bag, secure bike parking, Saturday GA admission, food and beer vouchers for a post-ride party.

Ultimate VIP weekender pass: The big ticket is a $1,000 all-weekend pass that gets you GA admission for two people to every day of the festival, plus two Buzz and Sporting KC VIP tickets for Friday and Saturday, two VIP Taps & Tastes tickets, two Father’s Day Beer & BBQ Brunch tickets and three nights at a hotel (Friday through Sunday). Gotta be 21 or older. 

Limited tickets will be available for all of the above packages, except for the GA tickets, of which there will be plenty. Look for tickets to go on sale in March.
