Busch Gardens Takes on Flavors of the World

Busch Gardens Takes on Flavors of the World

Eat your way around the world this summer at a new event at Busch Gardens® in Williamsburg, Virginia. Its first annual Food & Wine Festival takes guests on a fun-filled international culinary adventure.

Sample a wide range of global cuisines such as paprikash and linzer torte from Austria, halloumi and baklava from Greece, shepherd's pie and Scottish eggs from Scotland and chorizo empanadas and tapas (shown above) from Spain. Beyond tasty and authentic plates, the festival boasts wine pairings with European wine experts and other fun activities such as cooking demonstrations and live music.

Celebrity chefs such as Virginia Willis (who is one of Martha Stewart's favorites) bring their expertise to Busch Gardens each weekend. Through live cooking demonstrations, they share their tips, tricks, philosophies and even tastes of their delicious creations.

A fun grape-stomping show enlivens the park as well. A few guests will even have the opportunity to participate in the Italian wine-making tradition.

The Food & Wine Festival runs from May 31 through June 23 (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays). Make reservations for all the fantastic Exclusive Experiences here.
