Bier Fest is the Best Way to Kick Off Fall

As we find ourselves at the end of another summer season, we’re not even a little bit sad—why would we be, when there’s so much to look forward to?

As fall approaches, we’re excited to experience Bier Fest at Busch Gardens. As you may already know if you’ve experienced this delightful combination of classic Oktoberfest charm in the world’s most beautiful theme park, Bier Fest is the best way to kick off fall. Check out what’s new this year (and don’t skip the bonus at the end)!

New Thrills on Tap

Starting August 18, experience Virginia’s largest craft beer festival every Friday-Sunday (including Labor Day) through September 4. Over 120 craft brews represent 78 breweries, with 33 of those being Virginia breweries. Pair an artisan cocktail or an exciting new brew you haven’t tried with savory snacks (think pretzel bites topped with bacon and beer cheese), and enjoy new entertainment each weekend with a lineup of amazing local bands.

Live Entertainment

We love a good craft beer & live music marriage! You’ll get that here every weekend, with talented Virginia musicians that play everything from the polka to laid-back country and rock. Soak up the end of summer in perfect weather as you find the perfect song.  

Head to the Próst! Patio stage located next to OktoberTaps, or the Willkommenhaus Stage located in front of Willkommenhaus, across from Kinder Karussel.

Próst! Patio Stage Showtimes: Friday – Sunday at 12 PM, 2 PM, 4 PM, and 6 PM.

Willkommenhaus Stage Showtimes: Friday – Sunday at 11:30 AM, 1:30 PM, 3:30 PM, and 5:30 PM.

See all showtimes here.

Are you a passionate beer drinker? Próst! Patio is also the site for ALL-NEW Tap Takeovers, where different brewery representatives share samples, suggestions, and secrets of the craft all weekend long. 

And don’t forget! At Bier Fest, you’re in the middle of a world-class theme park! Enjoy the thrill of award-winning rides including the ALL-NEW DarKoaster, plus amazing shows and animal interactions!

Combining classic Oktoberfest charm with Virginia’s favorite brews and bands, Busch Gardens Bier Fest is the best way to kick off fall.
