With Busch Gardens’ current event Summer Nights rapidly approaching its end on July 29, we wanted to take a few minutes to prep you for all the awesome events Busch Gardens Williamsburg has scheduled for the remainder of 2021.

First up, one of our favorite events, Busch Gardens Bier Fest is bigger than ever this year, returning weekends from July 30-September 6. During this event, you can enjoy different kinds of beer throughout the park, attend speaking events with different breweries, and maybe even get a sneak peek at some of the decorations as they start going up for Howl-o-Scream.

Speaking of Howl-O-Scream, it’s back! Select nights from September 12 – October 31, Halloween Night. Yes, Howl-O-Scream is returning this year, an adult-focused Halloween event that’s included with park admission.
