Celebrate 23 Years of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

It's almost time to open the shutters on the 23rd Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! 75 days of delicious culinary adventures begin on Thursday, August 30th, 2018. This year's event features more than 30 global marketplace booths circling the World Showcase Lagoon and annexing just a bit of Future World too. Guests will be able to sip and stroll their way through diverse ethnic cuisine, refreshing new beverages, and enjoy a star-studded entertainment lineup. It's no wonder many adults find Food & Wine Festival to be the best season to visit.
