Live Music Featuring National Acts Returns To Busch Gardens’ Food & Wine Festival
In addition to offering more than 110 amazing dishes and drinks available to guests during the park’s Food & Wine Festival this spring, Busch Gardens Tampa will also serve up outdoor concerts included free with park admission!
The weekend Food & Wine festival runs each Friday through Sunday, now through April 25. The Festival Field Stage will host headlining national acts every Saturday in March and April, plus Friday, April 2, giving two limited-capacity performances each day. While over at the Coke Canopy, local talent will take the stage daily throughout the festival.
Enhanced health and safety measures will be in place for performers and guests alike. In addition to increased cleaning and sanitation, temperature checks, and face covering requirements, capacity will also be significantly limited in order to create more open space, allowing guests to maintain physical distancing in a safe environment.
“Since our reopening in June, our park teams have safely and successfully hosted multiple productions at our spacious outdoor venues,” said Neal Thurman, Park President for Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island. “Through creativity, adaptability and dedication to guest safety, our staff made it possible for park-goers to once again enjoy live music from some of their favorite artists.”
Included free with park admission, guests may enjoy the following acts during Busch Gardens’ Food & Wine Festival. For the first time in the festival’s history, two limited-capacity shows will be offered for each headlining act at 5:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M., creating more physically distant options for guests to enjoy their favorite artists.
