KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Great things keep happening at the Kansas City Museum and this event promises to satisfy the hunger, and thirst, of everyone attending.

The Kansas City Microbrews and BBQ Festival has chosen the iconic Corinthian Hall location for their 2015 Festival, currently scheduled for Saturday, May 30, the weekend following the Memorial Day holiday. What better way to usher in the Kansas City summer season than relaxing on the grounds of the former R.A. Long mansion, sampling some of the best craft brews in the Midwest? Add the gastric pleasure of local BBQ to the mix and it’s a match made in a sudsy, carnivorous heaven.

In addition to the festival on the Museum grounds, the 52nd annual Tour of Kansas City Cliff Drive Classic Circuit Race and 5K Run will be taking place at the same time on Cliff Drive with racers finishing on top of Gooseneck Hill, directly across from the museum, giving festival patrons an opportunity to see some first class bicycle racing. More details on the festival, as well as potential vendors, will be forthcoming. Rest assured, it’s going to be a great weekend for Craft Brew and BBQ fans and its right here in Historic Northeast.

“We’re excited to be a part of this event…Craft brewing paired with authentic Kansas City BBQ? What could be better!”
