New Details Released for Food and Wine Festival

The countdown is on for the 24th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! This event kicks off on August 29th and we just received more details on how you can even more fun than before!

A few new celebrity chefs are making with Food and Wine Festival debut this year! Don’t miss restaurateur Fabio Viviani (Sept. 15), Aarti Sequeira from Food Network Star (Nov. 17), and cookbook author of “Life is a Party” and husband to Neil Patrick Harris, David Burka (Oct. 13)!

The Sunday Brunch with the Chef experience will also be returning to the festival. Several chefs are appearing this year including Jamie Deen (Sept. 1), Carla Hall (Sept. 8), Richard Blais (Sept. 22), Robert Irvine (Sept. 29) and Graham Elliot (Nov. 10). Reservations are highly recommended for this experience.

Don’t miss the Eat to the Beat Concert Series on your trip! You can check out the lineup here. India, Taylor Dayne, and Kenny G have also been added! With 249 total concerts, there is sure to be music everyone can tap their toes to. If you’d like guaranteed concert seating, you can book an Eat to the Beat Dining Package. With the dining package, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at participating Epcot restaurants before you enjoy the show!

Next, we can’t forget the kiddos. Take the little ones to Sunshine Seasons in The Land Pavilion for a Candy Sushi class. This event is offered two times per day. For a small fee, you and your children will be paired with a Disney chef as you roll sweet sushi treats.

Do you have a sweet tooth? Check out The Chocolate Experience: From Bean to the Bar hosted by Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. Located in the Harvest Theater in The Land pavilion, join the Ghirardelli team as they whip up delicious chocolate sundae treats.

Lastly, complete your Food and Wine Festival experience with some stylish new gear. Chef Minnie and Chef Mickey have cooked up a fun line of accessories and apparel. From cupcake headbands to Figment goodies, I’m sure you’ll leave Epcot decked out in something new!
