Fall decorations are going up, the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party is tonight (insert excitement here), and that just means that the Epcot Food and Wine Festival will be in just a few short days. The Festival kicks off August 30 – November 12. Check out all the fun that’s in store for you this year at the Food and Wine Festival.
The Eat to the Beat Concert Series returns to America Gardens Theater with nine new acts including Jim Belushi & The Sacred Hearts, 98 Degrees, Vertical Horizon, and some returning acts such as Everclear and Hanson.

The all-new Disney Du Jour Dance Party is kicking off in Future World on the Fountain View Stage on Friday and Saturday evenings throughout the Festival. This new dance party hosts great music and interactive dances for the whole family. Disney Disney characters will stop by each week, so you could find yourself dancing with Nick and Judy from Zootopia, Remy and Emile from Disney•Pixar’s Ratatouille, Lilo and Stitch, and Chip ‘n Dale or Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar.
For opening weekend, the Disney Du Jour Dance Party will feature Hollywood Records’ recording artist, IRL. The band just wrapped the first leg of the American Idol 2018 tour and will embark on their own headline tour, starting September 9. You can catch IRL’s performance at Epcot August 31 – September 1.
Kids can explore a new playground in Future World, participate in the Junior Chef Kitchen presented by Krusteaz (Sundays in the Festival Center) and try their hand at rolling sweet sushi treats at Sunshine Seasons with Candy Sushi presented by Skittles and Adventures by Disney. I am actually pretty excited about the Candy Sushi. I am giving it a try when I go in October!
A separately ticketed event, Party for the Senses, runs on select Saturdays and pays tribute to the sensory arts with a night filled with incredible food and entertainment. This year, each Party for the Senses is headlined by a performance from the incomparable Femmes of Rock. The Femmes of Rock have wowed audiences worldwide with high-energy shows, featuring classic rock hits played on electric violins.
With so much great entertainment to sample – not to mention the amazing food – August 30 can’t get here soon enough! Who’s going?
