Today, we’ve got big news about the 2014 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival!
The marketplaces, similar to those you find at the Food and Wine Festival, celebrated fresh flavors from different countries. Many also featured surrounding gardens growing some of the ingredients used in the marketplace dishes!
Well, today, we are excited to bring you news that the food and beverage marketplace booths will be returning for a second year in 2014 during the 21st Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival!
The event, which will span 75 days from March 5 through May 18, 2014, will include around twelve marketplaces, scattered throughout the pavilions of World Showcase.
Last year, guests delighted in tastes from booths like The Cottage, a celebration of flavors inspired by the United Kingdom. Exotic and fun Frushi from the Hanami Booth was a fun, kid-friendly takeoff on sushi (check out the recipe here!) The Smokehouse, with its authentic barbecue smells and tastes, was a great addition to the American Adventure pavilion. And who could forget about that Pineapple Dole Whip, featuring a topper of Siesta Key Spiced Rum?
There’s no word yet on what booths will return and what menu items might change, but we’ll look forward to strolling the all-lit-up topiary gardens at night, sampling the eats.
Stay tuned to Disney Food Blog for more information on this beautiful — and delicious — event that’s helped Epcot to win the distinction as the “Festival Park”!
