    Boulevardia announces brewery lineup for 2020 Taps & Tastes

    Posted February 19, 2020

    Organizers of Boulevardia, the two-day Kansas City urban street festival, are excited to announce the brewery lineup for its Taps & Tastes event on Saturday, June 20, inside the Crown Center Exhibition Hall. Tickets for the highly anticipated beer and food sampling experience go on sale at 10 a.m. CST Tuesday, Feb. 25, along with other festival ticket packages.

    In 2020, Taps & Tastes will start at 2 p.m. so attendees can enjoy all the music performances at the festival Saturday evening. The new location at the Crown Center Exhibition Hall makes it easy for attendees to stay at one of two onsite hotels and go to and from the festival. This year, Taps & Tastes will have a DJ and a host to keep the festival atmosphere flowing throughout the event. In addition, more than 15 local restaurants make up the Taps & Tastes food lineup with bites ranging from savory to sweet. Additional details about participating restaurants will be announced in the coming months.

    Two ticket packages are available for Taps & Tastes on Saturday, June 20: general admission, which costs $75 for 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. or, early admission, which costs $115 for the 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. range and gives guests an extra hour of sampling. Both ticket packages provide guests with unlimited beer and food sampling, a keepsake tasting glass, as well as general admission to Boulevardia on Saturday, June 20.
