This year, Busch Gardens has expanded this event to be on both Saturdays and Sundays Feb. 11 through March 4, though the free concerts will take place only on Sundays.
The concert lineup includes:
- Feb. 12: Lynyrd Skynyrd
- Feb. 19: Brett Michaels
- Feb. 26: 38 Special
- March 4: REO Speedwagon
In addition to the music, Bands, Brew & BBQ features craft beer tastings and, well, barbecue, of course. There are also food tastings from local restaurants, as well as food prepared at the park.
Admission to the concerts and the festival is free with park admission on those days. One of the best ways to visit is to pick up a Busch Gardens Fun Card ($79.99 adults / $71.99 kids 3 to 9) that allows you admission any (and every) day through Dec. 31, 2012.
