The 9th annual Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic takes place Friday, October 26, and Saturday, October 27, 2018.
This popular two-night event coincides with the 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival and includes The Causeway, Seminars, and three special food locations — and today we have details on the entertainment and seminars for the event!
For the first time ever, the live entertainment at the Food and Wine Classic will expand beyond the main stage and into several of its themed areas.
Manureva, a family group, will perform authentic songs and melodies from Polynesia in the new luau-themed area, The Pig & The Poke.
Vintage Vibe, a group of “renegade musicians” who cover songs from the 1920s and ‘30s, will be in the Bubble Lounge; and singer-guitarist-songwriter Harry “Captain Henry” Hann will play his blend of rock, soul, jazz, and reggae (what he calls Floribbean) in the Beer Garden.
And, over at the Dolphin clamshell main stage for both nights of the Food and Wine Classic, guests can enjoy Epic who will be performing today’s best dance, pop, and party music; 501 Blues; and Atlantic City Boys who’ll be playing harmonies of the Beach Boys, Drifters, the BeeGees, and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
The Food and Wine Classic is also offering 10 seminars this year!
