Small country, big ambition.

Because a desirable society stands on principle and aspires higher, Boulevardia is no everyday experience. We strive to make a difference in the community that supports us. We believe that together, we can make an impact. At Boulevardia we promote the following principles:

  • Eco-urban thinking and promoting the value of green initiatives in all aspects of daily life
  • Providing opportunities to cultivate local partnerships; from fresh, local food elements to artisans, designers, vendors and business relationships
  • Education of the craft beer industry and the business and community impact these breweries deliver
  • Developing and cultivating opportunities for leadership, community outreach and volunteerism
  • Deepening a sense of community among Kansas Citians through the promotion of our city’s unique flavors and culture and contributing to the vitality of the great Midwest

Why Father's Day Weekend

Where to start? How about with the fact that by June, summer is starting to crank into full swing. The sun’s out but not melting us yet. What better a season to savor everything this festival is about? And while we’re paying tribute to the things that make our nation great, our founding fathers also thought it a fine idea to tip their hats to all fathers. Because if there’s anyone who would appreciate a relaxing holiday weekend the Boulevardia way, it’s a dad.



Why The Stockyards District

As a pop-up nation, Boulevardia draws inspiration from the community in which we gather to celebrate. In 2017 our home moves to the Stockyards District. Situated in one of the oldest areas of Kansas City, the site was originally an area for trade and a receiving point for goods traveling on steamships up the Missouri River. Alongside the railroads, the Stockyards began to really boom in the 1870s and a whole city full of hotels, restaurants and bars soon grew around them. Over the years the Stockyards District has seen its share of ups and downs, but it’s vibrant again and we’d want to host our party nowhere else.



Why Do We Cheers To All

There’s already too much trouble and disagreement throughout the rest of the world, so far be it from us to add to any unrest. What makes us happy and our nation function most effectively is seeing people from all walks of life and of all ages, races, styles and personalities come together with the same motivations. We know from experience that there’s power in diversity and it fuels everything we do to provide for our own. Besides, it’s a heck of a lot more interesting too.
