Hot on the heels of the Bands, Brew & BBQ concert series during February/March, comes “Viva La Música”.
Each weekend from late April to mid May, SeaWorld celebrates Latin music, cuisine, arts and crafts like homemade jewellery as part of the Hispanic Viva La Música event.
The authentic latin flavours are created by SeaWorld’s own executive chef, Hector Colon and are available at some of SeaWorld’s restaurants including Mango Joe’s, the Seafire Grill, the Cypress Bakery and at food kiosks along the Bayside Pathway.
The events start around 12:00 pm and the concerts start at 3:00 pm. In previous years Busch Gardens had also hosted similar concerts on a Sunday.
Over four weekends, some of the hottest Latin musicians will be performing, starting on Saturday, April 16 and finishing on Saturday, May 14. There is no event on April 30.
Admission is included in the standard single day ticket or annual pass though seating is limited on a first-come first-served basis (see below for special ticket deals).
The SeaWorld concerts are on Saturdays. The provisional line up is as follows.
