Bier Fest has become an end-of-summer tradition at Busch Gardens® Williamsburg, satisfying a wide range of tastes with some of the country’s best beers.  This year it’s even better with NEW beer selections, music talent, and food offerings. 

The annual festival returns to the “World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park” with more than 100 beers, including new taps throughout the event, brewery talks from popular craft breweries, live local bands and traditional German food.  

Bier Fest takes place every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Aug. 16 – Sept. 2.  Beer bars throughout the park will offer guests unique draft and bottled beers from around the world, including a vast selection from Virginia craft breweries.  The event is free with park admission.  Beers are available for guests aged 21 and over, for an additional fee.

And what’s Bier Fest without authentic German food?  This year’s menu features returning favorites like turkey legs and beer-battered bratwurst, and NEW selections including a bratwurst burger slider and pretzel bites with beer cheese and bacon.

Busch Gardens’ Burgermeister will host a firkin keg tapping ceremony on Fridays during the event. 

Not only will the beer be cold, but park guests can enjoy sounds from top local bands:

  • Daily performances; fan-favorite THE HAPPY DUTCHMAN will perform each day during Bier Fest.
