Celebrate the long weekend with the annual Kansas City Irish Fest, a pig roast or Port Fonda's beloved festival celebrating New Mexican Hatch chiles.
"Our latest Brewhouse One Series release, Mariachi Moonshine was made for our friends and neighbors. Available exclusively at the Boulevard Tours & Rec Center, this is a barleywine like no other. Darker, richer and sweeter than a traditional take on the style, this Barleywine Ale Double Barrel-Aged in Tequila and Whiskey Casks clocks in at an impressive 13.7% ABV. The beer spent nine months in bourbon barrels before being transferred to tequila casks for an additional six months, a double aging process that layers a multitude of flavors and aromas on top of an already complex base beer, with notes of sweet tequila, American oak and bourbon." From 10am to 9pm.
"Kansas City Irish Fest offers attendees the chance to see some of the top Irish entertainment in the world. But there’s so much more to do here beyond listening to music! After all, we’re here to bring the heart of Ireland to the Heart of America, and that means everything from Irish heritage to contests using Irish themes and traditions." Friday from 5 to 11pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 11pm.

Jackalope Wine Cellars' goal is to make handcrafted wines that express the unique character of the Pacific Northwest. Said character is not just the soil and the climate that produce amazing grapes, but it's also the collaborative and supportive nature of the wine industry.

We'll save you some seats!" From 8pm to midnight.
