September Things to do on I-Drive

Thursday, September 2, 2021
September is here! And with the lazy days of summer behind us, we’re gearing up for a busy month of exciting experiences and fan favorite events on I-Drive!
If you’ll be on I-Drive this month, be sure to check out these upcoming events for an epic trip to International Drive.
1. SeaWorld Orlando’s Craft Beer Festival: Now with a new twist!
If you’re visiting I-Drive, you’ve probably already got at least one visit to SeaWorld Orlando in the itinerary. Whether you’re immersing yourself in the mysteries of the sea through up-close animal discoveries, amazing attractions for every kind of thrill seeker, mingling with the dolphins, or feeding sea lions their lunch… a trip to SeaWorld is always sure to take vacation adventures and make them lifelong memories.
If you’ll be visiting SeaWorld Orlando between now and September 19th, attending their Craft Beer Festival is a must! Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, plus Labor Day, enjoy a festival that features over 100 craft brews, wines, seltzers, and cocktails alongside festive entertainment that will keep the party going throughout your entire visit. But, this year, you can enhance your Craft Beer Festival experience by attending one of their exclusive craft beer dinners!
Featuring seventeen favorite Florida local and national breweries and distilleries, attendees will enjoy a welcome reception with specialty craft beverages and small bites, followed by a signature four-course dinner complemented with brewery-selected beers and spirits, and even interactive beer talks throughout the evening. The dinner series will take place in the private Reef Room at Sharks Underwater Grill, and is the perfect festival for both “craft-beer connoisseurs” and the “craft-brew curious” fan, so be sure to get information about this new exclusive dinner series event before your visit.
2. Magical Dining - A foodie’s favorite time of the year on I-Drive!
If you consider yourself a foodie, or simply love enjoying a delicious dining experience for a great price… you won’t want to miss Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining, an annual event that lets you enjoy both of these things, while benefiting the Central Florida community!
August 27th through October 3rd, head to one of the many participating restaurants along I-Drive, and around Orlando, to enjoy a three-course prix-fixe dinner for just $37 per person.
