PoPFest is now considered one of the cocktail industry’s most celebrated events (Imbibe Magazine 2015). This festival is a three-day event that consists of many different sponsored activations that will require like-minded individuals with undeniable work ethic for all BOH doings. This includes, but is not limited to: networking events, health & wellness seminars, spirited dinners, multi-city team competition, tastings, after parties, trade showcase, etc. In a very unique approach to growing our industry, active local bartenders specifically facilitate PoPFest. These bartenders are eager to showcase not only food and drink culture in Kansas City, but also the important relationship with music, art, history, and general Kansas City pride.
