Busch Gardens Tampa offers seasonal events throughout the year that’s included with admission. Right now guests can enjoy Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival during weekends through the end of April.
This spring festival lets you explore more than 110 food and drink samples, along with live music and other entertainment. Here’s everything you need to know about BG Food and Wine!
I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are my own.
Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival
Guests can take their tastebuds on a road trip with classic cuisines from around the world! Each year you’ll find 20+ new dishes, along with refreshing cocktails, beers, and wines.
While attending the festival is free, there is a cost for samplings. I highly recommend purchasing the Food and Wine Sampler lanyard to save on costs. You can purchase a 5, 8, 12, or 15 item sampler.
Some of our favorite food finds include the Seasoned Brisket Pub Chips found at All-American Eats, the Espresso-Rubbed Tenderloin with white truffle mash found at Yuengling Butchery, the Po’boy Sliders at NOLA Eats, Mardi Gras Hurricane drink, and Puffin Punch at Gwazi Field Spirits.
With more than 110 items to sample you can visit Busch Gardens Food and Wine Fest multiple weekends and sample something new each time!
Busch Gardens Food and Wine Entertainment
From nationally recognized bands to local musical talent, safely eat to the beat throughout the open-air festival. Concerts are included with admission and happen each Saturday in March and April. Check here for concert acts.
Make sure to stop by The Corkyard for the Living Fountain. This is a big hit! You can see the beautiful artistic act, along with another nearby act in this Instagram stories highlight.
The festival begins at noon until park closing. This is such a fun way to enjoy the day at Busch Gardens Florida! We hope you’ll make a visit to explore the foodie finds, entertainment, rides, and more!
Don’t forget, you’ll need to make a reservation before heading to the parks so they stay at or below capacity. You’ll also need masks. We appreciated the socially distanced areas for eating, as well as handwashing and sanitizing stations.
