What would a Food & Wine Festival be without food? Busch Gardens will be offering a variety of culinary creations, both returning and new.
Here are some new additions to the menu this year:
- Grilled lamb chops featuring a 15-year balsamic drizzle from northern California
- Chorizo queso fundido with sweet onions and shishito peppers or grilled elote – the park’s spin on Mexican street corn featuring cotija cheese and lime crema
- Pineapple upside down cake
- Kona-crusted filet mignon with Maui onion butter
Throughout the event, guests can explore exotic spirits at signature vodka, bourbon, ice wine, tequila and sparkling wine tastings.
The best way to savor and save on everything the festival has to offer is with a Food & Wine Festival Sampler. Guests can purchase a 5, 8 or 12-itemsampler lanyard to use at each festival cabin to explore sample-sized dishes and drink offerings with ease. Pass Members can purchase an exclusive 15-item sampler for the same price as a 12-item sampler.
