SeaWorld Orlando’s Seven Seas Food Fest Returns

SeaWorld Orlando’s Seven Seas Food Fest Returns

SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Food Festival is back starting February 17. The festival is a celebration of “globally inspired flavors, local craft beers and culinary marketplaces,” that will occur every Saturday and Sunday through April 29. The event, which debuted at SeaWorld Orlando last year, will run for an extended period of time this year with a  total of 14 weekends.

International Street Food

The event’s menus are influenced by popular street food from all over the world. Festival markets offer small plates, craft beers, wines, and cocktails that are unique to the region that each market represents. In addition to the markets, there will also be two limited-time areas with food stations that focus on a specific type of cuisine. From February 17 – March 25 guests can sample a variety of BBQ dishes, and enjoy Latin-inspired cuisine from March 31 – April 15.

Festival Markets

The festival market menus, developed by chef Hector Colon, feature over 60 unique foods, 70 beers, and 50 different wines and spirits. The various culinary delights are inspired by Asian, Latin, European, Polynesian, and North Atlantic dishes and can be found all throughout the park.
