New Global Marketplaces, limited edition merchandise, live music, and more will kick off next month in this year’s 129-day Food & Wine Festival.
The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World will be presented by CORKCICLE in 2021. The event will run from July 15th through November 20th.
Fan-favorite dishes will be returning to Global Marketplaces like Hawai’i, Australia, Germany, Canada and Greece, but this year’s event will also welcome several new food booths around World Showcase.
New booths this year include: “Brew-Wing at the Epcot Experience,” which will feature chicken wings with assorted beers and ciders, and “Rotunda Bistro,” bringing fresh seafood dishes into the American Adventure Pavilion.
Beginning October 1st, additional food booths will open, expanding the festival’s Global Kitchen roster. New booths opening in the Fall include “Kenya,” “Lobster Landing,” and “Mac & Eats.”
This year’s sponsor, CORKCICLE is offering sparkling beverages at five locations during the event. They will be available for purchase in an exclusive keepsake premium beverage container.
You can also commemorate your visit and bring the culinary magic home with other official event merchandise created just for the festival, including apparel, home decor, collectible pins and more.
Select entertainment is returning to this year’s event with performances by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and Jammin’ Chefs.
The festival will also feature America Gardens Bandstand, a live-music concert series performed Friday through Monday evenings. Local bands from across Central Florida will take to the America Gardens Theatre stage, playing popular songs of yesterday and today.
The scavenger hunt, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak, is returing for 2021. Simply purchase your map and stickers from select merchandise locations and start looking for hidden Remy statues around the park.
Families can also play along in Emile’s Fromage Montage, by simply sampling cheese dishes around the festival like the passionfruit cheesecake. Collect five stamps and scurry over to Shimmering Sips for a prize!
The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival kicks off July 15th. Festival activities are available with valid theme park admission and a park reservation for the same date.
