  |  by Mealtrip
Here is a text-based line-up for the food booths (called "Cabins" at the festival), and the food items that will be available for this year's Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival. The festival takes place on weekends only between February 29th, 2020 and April 26th, 2020.

Pricing for all items won't be available until the first day of the festival. But — The Sampler Lanyards are back (yay!!!), and one of the better deals is the 12-item Sampler for $57.00 (plus tax) which would break-down to just a little over $4.75 per item.

This year's festival features over 25 new items along with many returning favorites. Together with more than 80 wines, craft brews and featured cocktails to choose from… the pairings are endless!
