Back for a second year, the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival returns to Tampa Bay. The popular Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival returns with a lineup of concerts from musical legends, sensational new culinary selections – including duck tacos, lobster ravioli, truffle fries and almond coconut truffles – and an expanded selection of more than 120 wines, craft brews and cocktails from around the world. The chart-topping artists will take the stage on weekends throughout March and April with the headlining act starting at 6 p.m.
“We are excited for the second year of our acclaimed Food & Wine Festival. Our guests gave last year’s event rave reviews and this year promises to be even better, with one of the best concert lineups of 2016,” said Jim Dean, President of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Food and beverage is not included with park admission and is available for an extra fee. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcoholic beverages.

I wasn’t able to attend last year’s Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival, I hope to get there this year. I’d love to see Huey Lewis & the News in concert too! Which concert would you most like to see?
