Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival is returning in 2024! What’s a bit surprising is the length of the festival. See the dates right here.

It’s time to eat and drink around the World! Disney’s teams of Disney chefs and mixologists have been testing, tasting, and collaborating to create a variety of culinary delights.

The highlight of the festival is of course the new concepts and menu items at Global Marketplaces located throughout EPCOT. We love seeing how Disney incorporates new dishes and drinks with returning favorites.

But, the festival isn’t just eating and drinking! There are so many other neat experiences to indulge in.

Eat to the Beat concert series (and the dining packages) will return in 2024, so be sure to check back for the list of performers when they become available!

Three scavenger hunts will also return: Remy’s Hide and Squeak, Emile’s Fromage Montage, and the seasonal Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit.

We will also be able to get MagicShots taken and purchase the festival-exlcusive merchandise. Check out a sneak peek of this year’s line above and below.

Disney just released dates for this wonderful festival! This year, EPCOT’s 2024 Food and Wine Festival runs from August 29 to November 23, 2024.

Last year’s festival from from July 27 to November 18, and 2022’s festival began in mid-July. So, Disney is definitely getting back to the pre-pandemic schedule. With all the fun summer stuff planned at CommuniCore Plaza, Disney definitely wants to give Guests a “breather” between Flower and Garden and Food and Wine.
