Epcot Food and Wine Festival 2017
From August 31st 2017 through November 13th 2017, EPCOT plays host to the 22nd Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.
To celebrate Epcot’s 35th Anniversary, the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival will feature 35 marketplace booths featuring culinary delights from all over the globe.
The Epcot Food & Wine Festival transforms World Showcase into an exciting panorama of color, aromas and tastes.
Pick your way through delicious bites from each country’s cuisine accompanied by wine, beer or a national drink and mouth-watering desserts.
Distant countries that you may have only read about are waiting to tempt you with unusual and captivating aromas.
The perfect opportunity to taste your way around the world. International “nibbles and dribbles” from all corners of the globe in one location for a record breaking 75 days.
Dig out your passport and travel to:
- Islands of the Caribbean
- New Zealand
- South Korea
The Poland kiosk will not be open this year but previous favorites, India, Spain and Thailand make a welcome return.
There’s over 200 menu items on offer, so make sure you go hungry and leave plenty of room for delectable desserts.
For a fascinating few minutes, head over to the Chocolate Kiosk for a Liquid Nitro Chocolate-Almond Truffle. As if that doesn’t sound tempting enough, it’s served with warm whiskey caramel sauce. And, watching it being created is almost as eating it. Almost.
AND IT’S NOT JUST GREAT FOOD AND DRINKS, THERE’S MUSIC TOO!
