Today we got some good news about a brand new event coming to Epcot called: Epcot International Festival of the Arts. It will be a trifecta of global masterpieces: combining visual, culinary and performing arts for six colorful weekends from January 13 – February 20, 2017.
The festival will be filled with Disney artists from the past such as: Mary Blair and Herb Ryman and even current Disney artists like: Joe Kaminski and Costa Alavezos. This won’t only be an opportunity to view the art, but you will also be able to see new art that’s being brought to life right in front of you!
Besides art, the Epcot International Festival of the Arts will also be collaborating with Disney Theatrical to bring a whole showcase of exciting Broadway talent and music to the festival. Over the 6 weeks of the festival, you will be able to see and hear performances from some of your favorite Disney on Broadway shows such as: The Lion King, Newsies and Aladdin, just to name a few.
That all sounds awesome, but you didn’t think that there wouldn’t be any food involved did you? The Epcot International Festival of the Arts will also be offering up culinary masterpieces from the Food Studios which you won’t be able to resist!
The Epcot International Festival of the Arts will run Fridays through Mondays, and will release brand new art each week. That means, every week will be a totally new experience that you won’t want to miss. I for one am really excited to see how it goes. It offers a nice in-between Food and Wine and the Flower and Garden Festivals.
