Mark your calendars: The 2015 Boulevardia beer festival will take place June 19-21 (Father’s Day weekend, for anyone wondering), once again at West Bottoms.

Festival organizers promise to build and improve upon the successes of the first festival, which was held in June and attracted more than 35,000 attendees. It was created by Boulevard Brewing Co. and featured various craft beer brewers as well as many local musicians and food vendors.

“Our team is looking forward to the challenge of making the fest even better in 2015,” said Jeremy Ragonese, president of Boulevardia, in a press release sent Monday. “Most importantly, we learned what guests enjoyed and what we could do better, and based on input from sponsors, contributors and consumers, Boulevardians have something to look forward to next June.”

Here’s a look at what the festival featured in June. One of the most popular tickets was for Taps Taste, which sold out in 17 minutes.
