Busch Gardens Williamsburg wraps up Bier Fest and preps for Howl-o-Scream


Busch Gardens Williamsburg has just a few days left in their Bier Fest event, which brings tasty food offerings and beer to the spotlight. Guests can experience over 200 year of tradition in the Oktoberfest section of Busch Gardens Williamsburg with traditional German favorites and a variety of craft beers from around the globe, including locally brewed beers.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg is also offering a Beer sampler card that includes 10 samples of your choosing in 4 oz. cups. This is perfect for guests who want to taste many different drinks or for guests who aren’t sure which kinds of beer they like or guests who just want to try something new.

The cost of the sampler is $22. The sampler also gives guests the opportunity to experience many of the different food options available during the event with different kinds of beers.

Bier Fest is almost over, though. The final day for Bier Fest is tomorrow, September 17th. The park will be open from noon until 8pm.

As Bier Fest is wrapping up, Busch Gardens Williamsburg is also making preparation for Howl-o-Scream, the park’s annual Halloween event. Howl-o-Scream is slated to kick off on September 23rd and run on select nights through October 29th.

While Busch Gardens is open during the day, at 6pm the park becomes a scary place at Howl-o-Scream starts. The park features 7 haunted mazes, frightful shows, spooky terror-tories, and more.

Our visit to Busch Gardens Williamsburg was a complete surprise and completely a last minute decision. With Hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida, we decided to evacuate and stay with our family in Virginia. We hoped Howl-o-Scream would be kicking off, but Bier Fest was a nice touch and something we really enjoyed. We can’t wait to come back to Busch Gardens Williamsburg soon – probably next year. In the mean time, please enjoy photos from around the park below.
