Previous Epcot Food & Wine Festival EventsChef at Epcot Food and Wine Festival

So far, we haven’t seen a schedule for any of these events for the 2023 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival. It is likely due to the Disney 100th Celebration taking place at EPCOT this year, we may see these return in the future.

Besides Marketplace Booths, there are several opportunities to get involved at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival at a variety of prices. Offerings vary day-to-day, so make sure to check out Walt Disney World’s official website for a complete daily schedule when you’re planning your trip.

Culinary Demonstrations

If you do want to spend a little to get involved in the festival, Epcot Food & Wine Festival Culinary Demonstrations are for you. They cost $19 each and typically offer free samples, useful information, and entertaining presentations. They’re a definite upgrade from the free offerings at a reasonable price. Many say this tier is the best value at the festival.

Special Events

Some of these events are $100 per person or more, but avid foodies will enjoy the plethora of special events offered at Epcot Food & Wind Festival. But you will also find reasonably priced choices like the Food and Beverage Pairings which are less than $30 per person! Here is the list of this years special events:

Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It: If you want to get your hands dirty, this is definitely the choice for you. This workshop allows you to get involved and try out tips alongside professional chefs. Previous workshop topics include cake decorating, garnishing, cocktail mixing, and more.

Food and Beverage Pairings: Guests can learn the fundamentals of food and beverage pairings from expert chefs that will collaborate with beverage experts to whip up delicious pairings.
