News! Epcot Food and Wine Festival Booths Going UP!

It’s COMING SOON 

I’m talking about the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival! Kicking off on August 31st, the longer-than-ever Festival will run all the way through November 13th!

There will be 35 Festival Marketplace Booths in celebration of Epcot’s 35th Anniversary (in fact, you can check out the full list of menus here!).

So I guess with more Booths AND more days than ever, the Food and Wine Festival crew needed some extra time to prepare. Because we are ALREADY seeing the Festival Marketplace Booths popping up all over World Showcase!

So you see, I’m not the only one telling you it’s COMING SOON

That’s actually the only current designation on the signage posted on top of the standing booths. But after years and years of attending the Food and Wine Festival, I’ve gotten to know these buildings pretty darn well! So, it’s now no trouble spotting the Ireland Marketplace Booth. (SUPER excited about the Warm Irish Cheddar Cheese and Stout Dip with Irish Brown Bread here! It’s SOOOO GOOD.)

Both the Belgium Booth and the Brazil Booth epitomize one of this year’s biggest themes. We can’t wait to Taste Our Way Around the World with lots of returning favorites, and some new flavors as well.

Let’s take a look at what these two Marketplaces will be offering guests in 2014, starting September 19th.

The Belgium Marketplace Booth offers Food and Wine Festival guests the best of both worlds. We love the interesting food options here. But it’s also a primo stop on your Brews Around the World Tour as well!

The Belgium Booth first debuted at the festival in 2010, and has become a mainstay since then. After all, who can resist indulging in a sweet or savory Belgian Waffle?

After such a hearty dish, we definitely recommend that you give one of the dessert waffles a try. You can’t go wrong with Belgian Waffle topped with Warm Chocolate Ganache and Whipped Cream.
