Every fall a special event comes to World Showcase – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival!
This festival is included as part of your Epcot theme park ticket. New food stations appear around World Showcase, each highlighting a specific country’s culinary delicacies. Each marketplace includes samples of the local food along with adult beverages that pair wonderfully. And with over 30 to experience, it may take you all day (and even all night) to experience them all! These marketplaces include Africa, Belgium, Dominican Republic, Hawai’i, New Zealand, Poland, Scotland and many more. Use your MagicBand or load up a gift card and experience as many as you wish.
Need a little break from all the great food and beverages? Take your samples to the American Adventure Pavilion where you can enjoy the Eat to the Beat Concert Series! Listen to your favorite bands such as Wilson Phillips, Smash Mouth, Rick Springfield, Boyz II Men and more as you enjoy the beautiful fall weather and cuisine.
The International Food & Wine Festival isn’t only about tasting your way around the world. There are many fantastic events to experience as well! Enjoy a food & beverage pairing event. Savor culinary wonders as part of an exclusive dining package. Learn how to bring your experience home during culinary demonstrations. You can even go to mixology and beverage seminars! (Note: most of these events include an extra cost.)
It may take a day or two (or even a week) to see everything this festival has to offer. If you are heading to the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, it may be worthwhile to add on a few extra days to enjoy it all!
