Okay, Disniacs! We are getting closer and closer to the 2020 Food and Wine Festival at Disney California Adventure park. It’s time to start preparing your trip. Let’s start by answering two of the most important questions:
- “When is the California Food at Wine Festival?” February 28, 2020 – April 21, 2020.
- “What’s the same from last year?” Three booths will be returning: “Avocado Time”; “Cluck-a-doodle-moo”; and “Nuts About Cheese.
Now, let’s dive deeper.
In the marketplaces, you will find a smorgasbord of California food and drinks. In Disney’s own words:
Each kiosk’s menu is inspired by fresh, California-grown ingredients like avocados, berries, citrus, peppers and artisanal cheeses. You’ll also uncover a variety of wines and locally brewed craft beers from across the Golden State.
While we are aware of the three kiosks that are returning, we still have no confirmation of any other new kiosks that we should expect. As for drinks, the Festival Beer Garden with local brews will be stationed in the Paradise Gardens and cocktails can be found at Sonoma Terrace.
Ticketed Events Schedule
Disneyland has another round of separately ticketed events with the select dates:

You can also expect to find culinary demonstrations by Disney and Celebrity chefs on Saturdays and Sundays during the festival.
Live music will also be provided at Paradise Gardens Bandstand and Palisades Stage as well as family-friendly events such as Jr. Chef, Jammin’ Chefs, and Craft Stations.
