Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival - The Park's Most Tastiest Event
5/28/2013 9:17:00 AM
WILLIAMSBURG (May 28, 2013) - Busch Gardens® is set to launch the park’s most tastiest event – the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival. Starting this weekend through June 23, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, park guests can enjoy a menu of fine cuisine, exquisite wine selections and other superb refreshments designed by Busch Gardens’ Resident Chef Justin Watson.
Global fare, vino and fine-crafted brews not usually featured at Busch Gardens will be available at 13 tasting kiosks woven throughout the park’s striking landscaping. Park guests can savor foods like France’s coq au vin with rosemary roasted fingerling potatoes while listening to the sweet serenade of a Parisian-inspired quartet, or stroll over to Germany for Rahmgulasch and polka with a traditional Bavarian oompah band. The 11 tasting kiosks will feature foods, wines and beer from around the world including Scotland, Scandinavia, Austria, Spain, Greece and more.
Although fine cuisine is the star of the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival, the event also features several interactive and enhanced experiences for guest’s enjoyment. The park has added a family-friendly interactive grape-stomping show, Grape Smashers™ and The Art of Food™, where ordinary food is transformed to extraordinary art.
May 31 – June 2 and June 15 – June 16, celebrity chef and acclaimed author Virginia Willis will be hosting Cooking Live! in the park and The Chef’s Guests™ - a reservation required exclusive experience. Other exclusive experiences requiring a reservation include the Food & Wine VIP Tour and Wine on the Rhine™.
Park admission includes access to the event. To allow guests the opportunity to try a variety of culinary delights, wines and beers, menu selections will be sold a la carte for a nominal fee ranging in price $3 - $7.
The Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival is a delicious experience, where taste will be as much an adventure as a ride aboard Verbolten®, the park’s newest roller coaster. For a complete list of event offerings, exclusive experience pricing and reservations, visit BuschGardens.com/VA. Bon appétit!
