2024 Busch Gardens, Tampa Food & Wine Festival Menu Items The 2024 Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival is just around the corner, so today, we're taking a look at the menu items for this year's festival. The Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival takes place on Saturdays and Sundays only between March 9th, 2024 and May 19th, 2024. The food and beverage locations should be open at 12pm and stay open until the posted park close times.

Festival Sampler Lanyards are back for 2024 and are a great way to enjoy the festival.
  • The 10 Item Sampler Lanyard is $70.00 plus tax ($78.74), which breaks down to around $7.88 per item.
  • The 15 Item Sampler Lanyard is $85.00 plus tax ($95.87), which breaks down to around $6.40 per item.
  • If you are a Busch Gardens Annual Passholder, there's an even better deal… an 18 Item Sampler Lanyard is also $85.00 plus tax ($95.87), which breaks down to around $5.33 per item!

The Sampler Lanyards can be shared between guests of the same party and are valid until the end of the 2024 Food & Wine Festival (so you don't have to use all your entitlements on the same day).

You might notice that there's some booth numbers missing on the following menu. We don't have a map (yet) this year and so I'm assuming (like in previous years) any missing number represents a booth or kiosk that offers souvenirs and not food or beverage items.
