The 2021 edition of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is set to kick off in just a few weeks on July 15, 2021 starting just 5 days after the end of the EPCOT Taste of Flower and Garden Festival, which ends this year on July 5, 2021. In addition to returning fan favorite Global Marketplaces, there will be new booths this year in Morocco, The American Adventure, and elsewhere in the park starting in July, with new marketplaces added in the fall.
This year's festival will run a record 129 days through November 20, 2021, and will be sponsored by Corksicle, whose sparkling beverage options will be available for purchase at the Shimmering Sips booth in an exclusive keepsake CORKCICLE premium beverage container.
This year's event will also feature plenty of entertainment options, and will include performances by park favorites like the Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and the Jammin’ Chefs. The festival will also open with America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare, a live-music concert series performed Friday through Monday evenings. Local bands from across Central Florida will take to the America Gardens Theatre stage, playing popular songs of yesterday and today.
Since this year's event will overlap with the grand opening of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure on October 1, 2021, there will be plenty of Ratatouille-themed activities this year, which will include the return of Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak which will send guests on a savory scavenger hunt in search of Remy statuettes hidden all over the park.
