Boulevardia, the three-day street festival hosted by Kansas City’s Boulevard Brewing Co., will return for a second year in 2015. The event will again take place Father’s Day weekend, June 19-21, in Kansas City’s West Bottoms district.

In its first year, Boulevardia attracted 35,000 visitors over three days, according to a Boulevardia news release. The inaugural event included a craft beer tasting, local and national music acts, and a variety of local restaurants and retailers.

The 2015 event will include elements of last year’s festival and also add “more unique experiences,” according to the release.

“Boulevardia’s inaugural year proved that Kansas City is ready for another signature event, and our team is looking forward to the challenge of making the fest even better in 2015,” Boulevardia president Jeremy Ragonese said in the release.

O’Neill Marketing and Event Management, a Kansas City company whose event clients include the Big 12 Championship and the Kansas City Irish Fest, will again work with Boulevard to produce the festival. Full Moon Productions, the haunted house operator that owns the West Bottoms land where last year’s event was held, will again provide space for Boulevardia.
