For as long as I can remember, my dad and I have always taken a traditional yearly trip to Worlds of Fun. Going to Worlds of Fun is one of the best memories I have growing up and I love that it is still something I enjoy doing as an adult. This weekend we went and check out the BBQ and Brew Festival. If you’re in the Kansas City area I highly recommend you give Worlds of Fun a visit while the event is happening.
When you get your ticket to the BBQ and Brew Festival you’ll get two craft beer samples and small plate food pairing for use at six different stations in Americana. You’ll get 12 sample drinks and 6 different foods to taste.
I was vey impressed with the entire event! We left with feeling full with some of the best tasting BBQ…so what exactly did they service at each station?

We had so much fun checking out the festival, riding rides and enjoying the park! I highly suggest you join Worlds of Fun for their 3rd annual BBQ and Brew Festival, featuring craft beers from around the region and tasty barbeque!
