Busch Gardens Tampa just launched their 3rd annual Food and Wine Festival this past weekend. The festival takes place from noon-9pm every Saturday and Sunday through March and April. There is a free concert for festival goers every night of the festival at 7pm. Headliners range from the Goo Goo Dolls to Newsboys to Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Admission to the festival is free with park admission, but samples of the seventeen dishes offered will run you anywhere from $4-$7 each. Beer and wine come in regular serving sizes for $7.50-$8.50. Busch Gardens offers punch cards at different amounts (5, 8, or 12 food and beverage items) or VIP packages that include priority concert seating and punch cards.
