The 2021 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts will be held from January 8th through February 22nd and we can’t wait to check it out!
We’re looking forward to exciting performances from groups like the Voices of Liberty and Art Defying Gravity and can’t wait to get our hands a little dirty while doing chalk art! Plus, you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be going around trying festival eats from ALL the food booths! Today, we’re able to begin preparing for our festival snack plans because the Festival of the Arts menus have finally been announced!
Now, here are the eats from all 16 booths we can expect from this year’s festival!
A NEW BOOTH!
First up, we have to spotlight the whole new booth coming to the festival. Located right between the Morocco and France Pavilions, Vibrante & Vívido will feature sweet and savory Latin flavors artfully plated!
We can’t wait to taste the offerings at Vibrante & Vívido including Chilled Seafood Cocktail, Blue Corn Papusa, and Passion Fruit Mousse!
NEW Menu Items!
Let’s take a look at some of this year’s new menu items! Germany’s booth, Cuisine Classique, will be bringing us a new savory and a new sweet dish with the Coq au Vin (Chicken Roulade with Violet Mustard) and the classic Opera Cake!
We’re hungry just thinking about it.
We tend to LOVE the Mexico Pavilion booth, El Artista Hambriento, that’s why we’re so excited that it has NEW EATS this year! We’ll be chowing down on a Chile Relleno stuffed with Flank Steak, Pork Belly Pastor, and a Taco de CHOCOLATE.
Plus, there’s the Diego Pomegranate Margarita and the Frida Carrot Margarita. We’re PUMPED.
Italy has a whole new food menu with Arancini (Sweet Sausage fried Risotto Balls), L’Aragosta (Lobster Ravioli), and a Bomboloni (Cream-filled Italian Doughnut) at L’Arte di Mangiare.
Maybe this is the fest where we’re finally wowed by this booth!
There’s also new eats at China’s The Painted Panda! Get ready for Old Shanghai Shi Zi Tou and Sichuan Red Hot Mala Shrimp. Those sound pretty flavorful!
And there are MORE new eats coming soon! To see EVERYTHING new and returning coming to the festival, check out our FULL MENU PAGE!
Here are some previous festival favorites that have made their way back to this year’s menus! You KNOW we’re excited to get our hands on the Crème de Brie en Petit Pain at L’Art de la Cuisine Francaise That’s Warm Creamy Brie in a House-made Bread Bowl!
At Goshiki in Japan, we’re welcoming back the Sushi Donut. YES. This Donut-shaped Sushi featuring Salmon, Tuna, Shrimp, Cucumber, and Sesame Seed over a decorated plate of Wasabi Aïoli, Sriracha and Eel Sauce is back!
And over at The Masterpiece Kitchen in the Canada Pavilion, we get to say heellloooo again to the Vanilla, Rose Water and Pistachio Panna Cotta.
Plus, we noticed that Beer Flights have returned to many of the menus as well! This is the first fest to feature flights since the park closures. Yay!
You can bet we’ll be taking you with us as we eat and sip our way around the WHOLE FESTIVAL this Friday! Stay tuned to DFB to follow along!
