Believe it or not, the end of the year is right around the corner, and soon, it will be 2023!
That means the EPCOT Festival of the Arts is also right around the corner, and we now know what’s been confirmed for the 2023 event!
The festival will take place from January 13th through February 20th, 2023. It will feature food booths, entertainment, works from artists, and more! We just learned more about the festival, so here’s what’s been confirmed as returning for 2023.
Of course, you can’t have an EPCOT festival without food studios. Last year, we had 15 total food studios.
This year we’ll have 16 food booths (with 2 new ones) PLUS several additional dining locations that will have festival-exclusive eats and drinks.

The chalk artists will also be returning in 2023. So be sure to look down at all the gorgeous chalk art they’ll be drawing on the sidewalks of EPCOT.
Leigh Alfredson (thechalkteacher) has shared that they will be there with a team creating chalk art each day!
You can also make art yourself at the Expression Section, where you can pick up a paintbrush to paint a numbered section of what will become a huge mural.
The Figment’s Brush with the Masters scavenger hunt is also confirmed. You’ll be able to purchase a map, which will lead you on a scavenger hunt to search for hidden Figments in art throughout World Showcase. Once you’ve found all the Figments, you can turn the map in for a prize.
You’ll also be able to see musicians, performance artists, and visual artists doing their thing LIVE for guests in World Showcase Plaza.
We’ve seen all kinds of announcements from artists about new pieces that will be debuting at the Festival. Brett Owens…
Finally, this year brings an exhibit showcasing art of Disney World attractions illustrated by Disney Imagineers. This exhibit will be located near the Creations Shop in World Celebration.
