One of the big perks of the Flower and Garden Festival is the Garden Rocks Concert Series which brings in big name performers to the American stage in the World Showcase. The popular Garden Rocks Concert Series returned to the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival after being canceled in year’s past due to the ongoing pandemic. Disney Parks Blog noted this when the concerts were announced to return.

Get your air guitars ready, because the popular Garden Rocks Concert Series returns to the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival this March! New this year, internationally recognized artists will bring the groove to the America Gardens Theater stage Friday-Monday, while local Orlando bands step into the spotlight Tuesday-Thursday.
