Attention foodies — EPCOT is bringing back its annual International Food and Wine Festival again for 2021, and it’s starting in July!
For 2021, Walt Disney World is starting the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival on July 15 with its famous Global Marketplaces, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak, merchandise, and more! The event will run through November 20.
When the ongoing pandemic hit, Disney World had to adapt to operating as safely as possible. One of these changes included introducing the “Taste of EPCOT” festivals, starting with the 2020 Taste of EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. The reasoning for this temporary name change was because Guests could only get a taste of what the festival can really offer.
Well, for the 2021 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival — Disney has dropped the “Taste of EPCOT” name and is now calling it EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival once again!
Disney Parks Blog shared the following information about the upcoming festival:
Start whetting your appetites, because the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival begins July 15 at Walt Disney World Resort!
This year’s event will kick off with Global Marketplaces, including the return of many favorites – Canada, Greece, Germany, Hops and Barley, Appleseed Orchard and others. Even more marketplaces will join the international smorgasbord as the festival continues on into the fall before wrapping on Nov. 20.
Additionally, families will once again be able to participate in Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak, listen to musical performances by Voice of Liberty, the Jammin’ Chefs, and Mariachi Cobre, and even sample delicious foods and drinks from around the world.

There will be lots of ways for families to enjoy this year’s event (beyond just eating lots of great food, of course):
- Sample all sorts of delicious cheeses served in fun ways as part of Emile’s Fromage Montage – if you collect a stamp from five different Global Marketplaces, you’ll earn a prize!
- Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will send you on a savory scavenger hunt in search of Remy statuettes hidden all over the park.
- Take a tasty souvenir home from the new merchandise collections, including a festival collection featuring a spirit jersey, baseball cap and so much more.
- Listen to musical favorites performed by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and the Jammin’ Chefs.
