New Weekend Events Coming to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay!


The team at amusement park Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida are doing what they can to make this summer fun and give their guests a great and memorable time. With that in mind, they have launched new weekend events taking place every weekend up to Sunday, August 16. Because spots are limited, you are encouraged to make reservations to the following events.

The kid-friendly Big Bird is BACK! takes place from Friday to Sunday, July 31 to August 9 at the Gwazi Pavilion. For these two weekends, attendees can enjoy a one-of-a-kind character connection with the big yellow bird. Distant photos with Big Bird, storytime at the Sesame Street Safari of Fun, and the “Let’s Play Together” show will all be available.

On Saturdays and Sundays August 15 – 23 at the Stanleyville Theater at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m, grab a seat in the climate-controlled theater for a look at the park’s animals you may not know are there at Wildly Amazing! An Inside Look at Animal Care. In the socially distant theater, guests will learn how to take care of animals like cheetahs, parrots, komodo dragons, and more from the zoological teams there that take care of them.

At the end of the day, stick around for Summer Nights: Food, Fun, and Fireworks taking place every Friday to Sunday at 9 p.m. going all the way to August 16. There will be new fireworks and laser show that you won’t want to miss. After spending a day in the park, you can enjoy a limited-time menu of BBQ and cocktails, and The Festival Field is set up for social distancing for relaxed viewing. The fireworks are also visible at other places in Busch Gardens.
