SeaWorld Orlando is known for having festivals almost year-round. One of our favorites here at Orlando Informer is the annual end-of-summer Craft Beer Festival, occurring July 26 through September 2, 2024. When this event rolls around each year, we know fall, football, and festivities are just around the corner.  

This event is included with park admission, and typically occurs for four to five weeks, starting sometime in August and concluding in September. Here’s everything you need to know about experiencing the SeaWorld 2024 Craft Beer Festival. 

While we await additional details regarding 2024’s Craft Beer Festival, please enjoy the information from 2023’s event.

SeaWorld Orlando is a park that boasts seven big rides and a number of smaller attractions. Catch a wave on SeaWorld Orlando’s newest thrill – Pipeline: The Surf Coaster – or cool off from the sun on a water ride like Infinity Falls.

No matter your age, the sheer number of animals that call SeaWorld Orlando home will put a smile on your face. From seeing Orcas up close in beautiful encounters to being able to feed and touch stingrays in the Stingray Lagoon, SeaWorld is a park that shows how interconnected we all are. 

Little ones will likely find their favorite spot in the park to be Sesame Street Land. A complete recreation of the place where the air is sweet, this part of the park is the perfect place to take your tot on a hot summer day. Here, younger guests can enjoy a splash pad, tyke-sized rides, and grab a treat from Mr. Hooper’s store.
