Disney today announced a brand new event at Walt Disney World Resort: the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, debuting Jan. 13 – Feb. 20, 2017. It’ll be a trifecta of global masterpieces: combining visual, culinary and performing arts for six weekends.

From the art of Disney historical artist Mary Blair and Herb Ryman art of Epcot to current Disney artists Joe Kaminski and Costa Alavezos, you’ll not only be surrounded by incredible visions, you’ll watch the creative process live.

In the inaugural year of the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, a collaboration with Disney Theatrical will bring an exciting new showcase of favorite music and Broadway talent to the America Gardens Theatre stage. Over the six weeks of the festival, guests can enjoy different pairings of phenomenal Broadway talent in concert singing the award-winning music of Disney on Broadway.

You can then feast on creations that look almost too good to eat, but you won’t be able to resist the new Food Studios. Your eyes and taste buds will battle over which sense is getting the better treat.

The Epcot International Festival of the Arts will run Fridays through Mondays, and unveil brand new art each week. Each weekend will offer an original experience.

IT is events like this that make EPCOT worth going to. I may not make it to this one but I may try for it in a year or two.

So the F & W booths will be up pretty much all year except for June, July and August. Bet there will be a new festival for the summer to keep them up all year.

We will for sure try this one out.

ANDREW – my thoughts exactly, it sounds like the food booths will be more visible for most of the year, than in years past. We shall see. Honestly, I stay away from the parks during the summer mainly because of the large crowds and the humid heat.
