Though the Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival’s lifespan was cut short this year due to the coronavirus closures, but much of its identity is set to remain intact with the early arrival of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is set to begin on July 15—when the park opens—rather than being exclusively fall. Flower & Garden Festival merchandise will still be available, although the 20+ food kiosks will be based around the various countries and themes that Food & Wine normally provides.
Famous, beloved Walt Disney World® Resort entertainers will take the place of the usual Eat to the Beat Concert Series, as social distancing regulations make holding a set of concerts impossible this year. It takes place at the America Gardens Theatre in the American Adventure Pavilion like always, so guests can still encounter musical entertainment in the same location as always.
This modified Food & Wine Festival will continue through the fall, with no end date announced.
