Running every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through May 21, don’t miss your chance to savor all the delicious flavors of the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival.

Plus, it’s included in your park admission!

We had a great time exploring the tasting booths and unique entertainment at this fun event. Let’s take a closer look at all that’s waiting for you inside the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival:

Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival Tasting Booths

The centerpiece of any food festival, Busch Gardens offers twenty individual booths – each featuring a different cuisine type or refreshment variety. Available options include Trek Through Africa, Twisted Egg Rolls, Greek Isles, European Delight, and lots more. Check out Busch Gardens’ website for a comprehensive list of every booth and its complete menu.

My Food Choices

During my visit, I chose three vastly different food items. My absolute favorite was the Buffalo Chicken Egg Roll. Served with a creamy ranch dipping sauce, this selection was flavorful, filling, and fairly priced. I also tried the Mushroom Ravioli with Truffle Cream Sauce from the European Delight booth and the (surprisingly spicy) Berbere Spiced Chicken Batbout from the Moroccan Market.

Tasting Lanyards

If you’re looking for a great value, consider one of Busch Gardens’ Food & Wine Sampler Lanyards. With a possible savings of 40-50%, you can choose between a 10-item lanyard for $70 or a 15-item lanyard for $85. (Psst…If you’re an Annual Passholder, you can also get an 18-item lanyard! Ask a staff member for details.) Knowing that the average price for each individual sample is around or over $10, these lanyards really are an amazing deal – especially if you’re going to visit the Festival on more than one occasion.

But there’s a lot more to this Festival than just the food! Head over to the outdoor Corkyard Gallery for an inspiring collection of animal and nature-themed paintings.

Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival Live Music

No matter which day you visit the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival, you can choose from a wide assortment of live musical acts. On select evenings, catch a main stream artist (like Hoobastank, Walk the Moon, or Air Supply) on the main stage. If you prefer a more indie approach, check out the Festival’s house band, visit Violinist Isaac Morales in the Corkyard Garden, or grab a seat next to Cellist Rose Mallare!
