2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival to Include Cranberry Bogs and Cranberry Recipe Contest

According to a press release from Ocean Spray back in October, the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival will include a real live cranberry bog (where? no idea — World Showcase Lagoon?)! And the Fifth Annual Ocean Spray Cranberry recipe contest will also be a part of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival this year. (Of course, this is all subject to change… .)

Cranberry Bog

This is all due to the recent relationship built between Craisins brand dried cranberries and the Walt Disney Company. See a quote from the press release below:

As a part of Ocean Spray’s ongoing commitment to educate consumers about the taste, health and heritage of the cranberry, the company will build cranberry bog displays during…the Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival in fall 2011. Third-, fourth- and fifth-generation cranberry growers will travel with 2,000 pounds of fresh cranberries from rural areas around the country to share their passion and personal farming histories while recreating the wonders of the harvest for families visiting the parks.

The events will provide the backdrop to showcase the versatility of the cranberry, and the Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival will be part of Ocean Spray’s Fifth Annual Ultimate Cranberry Recipe Contest for executive chefs.
