The annual Food & Wine Festival returns to Busch Gardens Tampa weekends in March and April with great food, beverages, and live music.
The 2019 festival takes place on weekends from March 16 through April 28, and features expertly-crafted dishes inspired by a specific region of the country. And with more than 100 fine wines, craft brews and featured cocktails to choose from throughout the festival, the pairings are endless.
The Seven Seas Food Festival at SeaWorld Orlando runs Feb 9 through May 5, 2019, and this year’s edition is offering up a wide variety of culinary delights – even a whole marketplace dedicated to vegan dishes.
Since the best way to plan a visit to the food festival is to know what’s being offered, I’ve put together a list of Marketplace menus for this year’s event. I’ve even noted the Gluten-Free (GF) and Vegetarian-Friendly (VF) dishes.
