One of the best theme park festivals in Orlando is SeaWorld’s Bands, Brew & BBQ. Three things that go remarkably well together. The event brings big talent to the stage, and accomplished BBQ joints to the food pavilion. Plus you’ll get to sample a wide selection of beers from our nation’s best brewers.
The festival is scheduled weekends throughout March (7-8, 14-15, 21-22 and 28-29), and Bands, Brew & BBQ is included with regular park admission. I look forward to this event every year.
A few years ago, protestors mis-informed by the one-sided documentary Blackfish, caused some of the music acts to cancel their appearances. Since then SeaWorld has only been releasing the names of each act a few weeks ahead of the weekend. So far we know who will be performing the first two weekends. It’s an amazing lineup.
Scheduled performances now include:
Saturday, March 7: Toby Keith
Sunday, March 8: Lynyrd Skynyrd
Saturday, March 14: Rodney Atkins
Sunday, March 15: Kool & the Gang
Event festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. each weekend, with concerts at 4 p.m.Read More »Bands, Brew, & BBQ Festival Kicks off at SeaWorld Orlando tomorrow
