Food + drink

Fuel up at one of the various local food stops + sip on a beverage of choice — see the options. If you’re looking to level up your taste bud experience, check out Taps and Tastes. For the first time ever, the food and drink sampling event is pulling from only MO + KS businesses and expanding its palate with new distillery offerings.

Get the app

Can’t keep track of all this good info? Focus on the music (and the beer, food, games, etc.) by downloading the BLVDIA app. Stay up-to-date with announcements, maps, a schedule builder, and even a tasting journal (think Letterboxd, but for beer).
