The Craft Beer Festival is hopping back to SeaWorld Orlando. Beginning July 28, guests can sample the more than 100 craft brews, wines, seltzers, and cocktails offered and enjoy over 15 perfectly paired dishes suited for any palette. Joining a host of returning favorites, the festival will also feature an array of brand-new, mouth-watering drinks and dishes. The festival will run Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through September 4 and is included with general admission.

Festive entertainment will keep the party going from day to night.

Ignite the Night with Exciting Entertainment
SeaWorld Orlando’s Craft Beer Festival is happening at the same time as Summer Spectacular, SeaWorld’s signature summer night event. Guests can enjoy jaw-dropping animal encounters and attractions during the day, then dance to live music in Club SeaGlow the night away. For a limited time, guests can even catch their favorite artists performing a free concert in the Nautilus Theater. Before concluding a day at the Craft Beer Festival, guests can raise a glass while watching fireworks and fountain spectacular “Ignite.”
