Just like the Festival’s inaugural year in 2017, three artistic disciplines will be celebrated: Culinary, Visual, and Performing Arts.

The Culinary Arts will once more be recognized with the presence of Food Studios. These standalone marketplace booths offer enhanced food options around World Showcase, with a focus on unique presentation in keeping with the artistic Festival theme.

    Really excited to be able to see this festival this year! I absolutely LOVE Epcot and this will be an exciting new experience!

    I know with the Food and Wine and Flower and Garden Festivals, the booths are sometimes open an operational prior to the official opening of the events. Do you think that will be the case with this Festival as well? I am going down in a week for the marathon weekend and was wondering if I might be lucky enough to nag some more Figment swag! :)

    Mac, that’s a good question — and up to the Disney gods, we’re afraid. ;) Good luck with the Marathon Weekend and catching hold of some Figment gear!
