Changes to the 2020 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival

The Festival began July 15 and continues until November 22.

The Eat to the Beat Concert Series has NOT returned to this year’s EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Instead, EPCOT’s beloved acts like Mariachi Cobre and the JAMMitors perform on the America Gardens Theatre throughout the day, allowing guests to practice physical distancing.

In previous years, food booths numbered in the 30s. For 2020, EPCOT global marketplaces number just over 20.

Food and Wine Festival features a Remy topiary crafted for the Flower & Garden Festival. Several Flower & Garden foods and drinks have also returned. Flower & Garden, a springtime festival, was cut short by Park closures.
