Details have been announced for the 22nd Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. Mark your calendars for 75 days full of flowers, fun — and food! The 2015 Festival will run from March 4 until May 17.
What can we expect from the 2015 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival? Read on to find out!
For the third year running, the Festival will feature Outdoor Kitchens situated around World Showcase.
The Outdoor Kitchens have been a welcome addition to the Festival, drawing a whole new crowd for the mammoth event. Reminiscent of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, the kiosks feature flavors of many of the World Showcase Pavilions.
Appetizer portions make it easy to experience lots of variety, and the smaller scale of the event — there are only about half as many Booths as you find at the Food and Wine Festival — makes it easier to try all of your favorites.
We’ve really enjoyed strolling the Promenade, taking in the international array of food and drink!
2015 promises plenty of brand new items added to the menus, featuring the flavors of Spring with an emphasis on Garden Goodness. And just like Food and Wine and Holidays Around the World, you’ll be able to track your culinary adventure with a Garden Passport!
Once again, the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival will feature a weekend concert series by some of your favorite artists.
While we are still awaiting announcement of the full lineup, the Gin Blossoms, Pablo Cruise, and the Village People are some of the acts that are slated to appear. We expect the roster to include lots of familiar favorites spanning four decades of popular music.
But another huge draw to the Flower and Garden Festival? All of those incredible Topiary Displays!
In yet another move that proves Frozen is taking over the world of Disney, you’ll see Sisters Elsa and Anna in a topiary tableau recalling the film’s finale.
Another brand-new addition to the lineup will include Chip and Dale! The lovable duo will appear alongside other Disney classic characters in the Festival’s Front Entrance topiary display.
Special Garden Displays
The Festival will also feature plenty of new gardening exhibits, too! Ten New Mini-Gardens will offer exciting themes. Check out fun spots like a Pepper Garden, a “Health Garden”, a Shakespeare Garden, and more!
Weekend guests will once again enjoy Gardening Seminars, held inside Festival Center. And be sure to stick around for nighttime at the Festival, when the topiaries and play gardens will be illuminated.
With so much to look forward to, we can’t wait for next Spring!
