Can you believe that the 22nd Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival kicks off this month? August 31 to be exact! This year’s festival promises to be even bigger and more magical than better. In honor of this being the 35th Anniversary Celebration of Epcot, the festival will feature a record 35 amazing wine and food marketplaces.
Here’s a peak of some things to come with Epcot chef Greg Hannon:
As many of you know, the 22nd Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is expanding for a longer-than-ever 75-day run (Aug. 31-Nov. 13, 2017). The event will be part of the park’s 35th anniversary day on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017 and feature several new experiences. Here are a few favorites:
New Acts for 2017 “Eat to the Beat” Concert Series will amp things up this year. There will be 11 new artists, including Jazz Legend Kenny G, and pop superstars like 10,000 Maniacs and Squeeze. Blog author Charles Stovall has the complete list here.
New Marketplaces are coming to the Festival – and India and Spain marketplaces will return for an encore. Our global marketplaces will extend into Future World to offer brand-new taste sensations.
ABC’s “The Chew” is returning to tape five festival shows that will air Oct. 9-13. With Spaceship Earth as the backdrop, the Emmy Award-winning show hosts will again delight a live audience with on-stage cooking and stories of their Disney adventures plus segments from across Walt Disney World Resort. Here’s our earlier story with more details.
Popular TV chefs and culinary icons will entertain at Festival Center demonstrations. Those same stars of the kitchen will create new dishes for premium events such as Party for the Senses grand tastings with new concepts and themes. Premium events are open for booking right now.
