The festival that celebrates creations and cuisine returns January 14-February 21, 2022 to EPCOT!

 

What really makes the International Festival of the Arts unique, is the stunning artwork exhibits throughout World Showcase.  Festival Markets spotlight artists from a wide-variety of mediums including; photography, painting, sculpting, chalk and more.  You will want to visit these markets and take a piece home with you!

 

 

During the festival even YOU become an artist!  Guests can participate in the Artful Photo Ops, Animation Academy and even a mural at Express Section.  Everyone can stop by World Nature near The Land daily from 11am-4pm to create their own chalk masterpiece!

 

Another highlight of this festival is the performing arts and we are so thrilled to say that DISNEY ON BROADWAY is back for 2022!  Broadway performers take to the American Garden Theater stage to entertain with songs from some of the biggest Disney musicals. Performances are at 5:30 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:00 PM daily from January 14 to February 21, 2022. Click here to view the 2022 DISNEY ON BROADWAY schedule

 

We all know that an EPCOT festival means there will be food and lots of it!  This festival celebrates food and adds an artistic flair to it.  Here’s a little sampling of what the festival will showcase in 2022:

Pop Eats (Near Port of Entry)
Delight in mouthwatering masterpieces inspired by the most captivating Pop Art of the 20th century. Highlights include the colorful almond frangipane cake and the ever-popular Pop’t Art—a sugar cookie with a twist. Plus, enjoy savory dishes like tomato soup with grilled cheese.

Deco Delights (Near Port of Entry)
Satisfy your sweet tooth with sleek desserts inspired by Art Deco, from the gilded glamor of the roaring 20’s to the bright pastels of Miami Beach.

The Deconstructed Dish (Near Port of Entry)

Would it even be an EPCOT festival if it didn’t have a scavenger hunt?  These scavenger hunts are great for all ages and during the Fsstival of the Arts, you will be hunting for Figment! To get started, purchase your map and stickers for $9.99 at Port of Entry, Creations Shop or World Traveler. Then, search for Figment hiding inside famous works of art at each World Showcase pavilion—just look for the Figment-themed picture frame.  Every time you find Figment, add the corresponding sticker to the pavilion on your map. Once your journey is complete, return your map to Disney Traders or World Traveler for an artful surprise!
