The 2018 Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival

I previously attended the 2017 Food and Wine Festival at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and was blown away. There was almost everything you could hope for in food, kid-friendly drinks and adult drinks alike. My family had a great time taste tripping around the park and even more fun picking which ones we had to revisit before we left.

I’m so excited to be attending this year’s Food and Wine Festival. Especially since they are now offering new tastes from around the world!
