Bier Fest, Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has been hosting a number of events to try to entice guests back to the park since it reopened in June after the COVID-19 closures. They have just announced their Bier Fest event which will take place Saturdays and Sundays, September 12 - November 15, 2020 between the hours of 12.00pm - 6pm. 

Due to the enhanced health and safety guidelines and in order to ensure physical disctancing the event will have limited capacity and reservations are required for all guests, including those with passes of any kind and Fun Cards.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Pass members are entitled to one free sample of either a food, beer, wine or cocktail. All you need to do is take your pass and scan it at one of the Self-Service kiosks to print your voucher which you can then redeem at any of the Bier Fest cabins.

The event will take place in a physically distant, open-air festival area where guests will get to sample new as well as returning local craft brews, unique snacks and meals from a range of Bier Fest cabins.
