The Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival opens THIS WEEKEND!! We're heading over tonight for a special VIP preview. We won't get to see any of the cool bands that are coming, but we will get to sample all the yummy food!!
The festival returns with signature dishes and exciting new cuisine – including duck tacos, lobster ravioli, bacon mac & cheese, brown sugar rubbed pork belly, banana foster panna cotta, gator bites, and cabernet-filled chocolates – as well as an expanded selection of wines, craft brews and cocktails.
Food and beverage is not included with park admission and is available for an extra fee. You must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcoholic beverages.
How much does it cost? The festival is FREE with park admission. How much is park admission?
For a limited time, buy a Busch Gardens Fun Card and get an Adventure Island Fun Card FREE. And don’t forget about the Busch Gardens Preschool Card – kids 5 and under get in FREE. I prefer the Annual Pass which offers unlimited admission all year, free parking, no blockout dates and special benefits totaling more than $300. With EZpay, Annual Passes start at just $14 per month for one park, and $16 per month for both Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island.
Will you be heading to the Food and Wine Festival this year?
