One of the longest food and wine festivals in the country takes place every year at Disney World. This fall, Epcot’s iconic Food & Wine Festival will be celebrating 20 years of culinary delicacies in Orlando’s Disney World.The festival will span almost seven weeks, from September 25 through November 16, and will showcase delicacies from booths representing more than 30 countries around the world, as well as a host of special events, tastings, dinners, and demonstrations.
For the first time ever, the festival will expand outside the World Showcase’s country pavilions, spilling into Future World. In addition, Mario Batali, Carla Hall, and the rest of the cast of ABC’s The Chew have announced that they will be broadcasting multiple shows from the festival itself. Epcot will also be selling its own wine for the first time, according to information from the Orlando Sentinel.
Some key events to look out for from the official Disney food blog include the new Artistry of Wine & Cheese festival area, the elaborate Party of the Senses on select Saturday nights, Eat to the Beat with musical performances from the likes of Hanson and Chaka Khan, and the Rockin’ Burger Block party. There are far too many events to list here, so check out the rest of the information at the Disney Food Blog.
