2013 Bands, Brew & BBQ at Sea World Orlando

Last Saturday I headed out with my son to Bands, Brew and BBQ at SeaWorld Orlando!  During this event the park hosts rockin’ concerts on Saturdays and Sundays from Feb 9  through March 3.

Make sure you come hungry because they will have a HUGE selection of different BBQ to feast on. Plus if you love a good brew, you can buy a “Craft Brew Sampler” tag for $21 where you can sample 10 different beers at any of the huts.

My tip for you for the concert portion…. Get to your seats early if you want to be up front.  The pavillion starts to fill up hours before the show.  Or you can buy a VIP experience for $39.99 which includes a meal and upclose seating.  However, no matter where you sit, you will get a great show !!!

  • Saturday, February 9  – Chris Young with Jerrod Niemann
  • Sunday, February 10   – Merle Haggard
  • Saturday, February 16  – The Beach Boys

  1. This reminds me of our Ribfest that we have Father’s Day weekend in Fort Wayne, IN. It’s tons of different ribs and lots of blues over a 4 day period. I never know what to get my father and have been taking him the last 2 years. We LOVE it! It’s a great time and quality time w/ my Dad. Also, I LOVE your new website! I’m not trying to be mean, but I was looking at your old design just yesterday and was wondering when you would do something new w/ it. Please don’t be offended, but I was never that crazy about it and it took forever to load on all of my browsers. The new design seems like ‘you’ and loads quick:)!

    • trust me I totally understand. I paid over $400 for that last design and wasn’t that happy with it but felt like I couldn’t pay for a new one for awhile. I finally decided it was time !!!

  2. How big are the beer samples? We were there a couple weeks ago and one bud light lime was like $7…so I’m wondering if the $21 for samples is a decent deal.

    • They were like maybe 6 oz cups so not like a full bottle if beer but bigger than a small sample. For $21 for 10 I think it’s a very good deal !

  3. Are there enough seats that if we come towards the start of the show, we will still be able to get a seat? I know they probably fill up quick, but we got tickets for Aquatica, and it’s the same day as Josh Turner :(
