EPCOT 2017 Food & Wine Festival Pre-Guide

It soon will not be long until the 22nd annual Food & Wine Festival begins at Epcot. Every year it seems Disney out does themselves and gives us plenty of reasons to be excited. The first reason to be excited is that the festival runs daily from Friday August 31st through Monday November 13th. This means you have 75 days to eat and drink your way around the world, which is 13 days more than last year. We will need all the time we can get because Disney is also setting a new record with 35 unique food and beverage Marketplaces.

Some of the new Marketplaces that we can look forward to include: Active Eats, The Almond Orchid, Coastal Eats, Earth Eats, Flavors From Fire, and Light Lab. We also welcome back Spain, India, and Thailand. With all of these new Marketplaces and returning fan favorites there is plenty of different things to try.

In addition to all of the wonderful marketplaces. There is always plenty of additional entertainment offerings. Some of these include:

  • Culinary Demonstrations
  • Events Hosted by Celebrity Chefs
  • Beverage Seminars
  • Cheese Seminars
  • Live Tapings of The Chew 
  • Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It (Which Debuted Last Year Returns)
  • Signature Dining Events
  • Eat to the Beat Concert Series

One of the highlights of the entertainment offerings for many is always the Eat to the Beat Concert Series.
