Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival

Food and wine... two of my favorite things. And I'm not alone in this, am I? I mean, you have to eat, right? So, why not treat your family to the rare opportunity to dine around the globe in just one day. From August 31 November 13, 2017, you can experience the park, and enjoy gastronomical and musical treats along the way.

An Amazing Culinary Adventure

Discover the 2017 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, a cornucopious array of cuisines and innovative cooking techniques from chefs worldwide. This food aficionado’s paradise is replete with delicious dishes, fine wine, craft beer, spirits and other beverages from over 35 individual marketplaces sure to satisfy every palate.

Pack your appetite for a mouthwatering tour of international flavors and domestic delicacies. Taste your way around the world with an endless selection of cuisine and beverages. And may I suggest comfortable walking shoes and (from experience) elastic-waist pants. Because, well, you know...

Feast on first-time culinary events with guest chefs, signature meals and more

Never wanting to get stale, pardon the pun, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival changes things up each year and 2017 is no different. It scours the globe so they can serve up a heaping helping of new and unexpected flavors, five-star chefs (whom you can meet) and sinfully delicious fun, sure to please the most discriminating palates. Offering everything from informative seminars and remarkable Marketplace items to a plethora of unique cuisine, “epicurious” you can indulge the senses like never before.

Also, this year's event will celebrate Epcot's 35th anniversary. One of the new offerings will be found in the Odyssey Pavilion, which will become the Epcot Legacy Showplace. Featuring displays of Epcot's rich history and a selection of throwback treats, the Legacy Showplace will be open until the end of the festival.

Eat to the Beat Concert Series

What washes down fine foreign food even better than a 1961 Châteauneuf-du-Pape? You guessed it... music.

Each night during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, the America Gardens Theatre stage lights up with one of the industry's top recording artists. From pop and rock to new wave and swing, Epcot International Food & Wine Festival serves up their Eat to the Beat Concert Series hot and fresh. Want to dance off that rich French cream-filled dessert that you couldn’t pronounce? Let Big Bad Voodoo Daddy lead the way. Rock out to Fuel, Living Color, Everclear and my all-time favorite band, .38 Special. Still rockin’ that mullet? 80s music mavens Tiffany and Taylor Dayne will bring you back to the days of questionable hair, parachute pants and Capezios. Treat your Millennials to American Idol's David Cook and Lauren Alaina. Digest to the mellow musical stylings of Air Supply (yes, they're still alive), Christopher Cross or the wonderful Plain White T's. And that’s just a sample of what you will hear during the course of this very fun event. Check out the full list of artists and dates to plan your best fest experience.

This autumn, don't miss the opportunity to gather friends and family to indulge in a sensory overload of food, drink, music, fun and fantastic memories. And when the delicious day is done, head back to your luxury vacation villa to relax and reenergize for your next day's adventures.
