As a relatively new staple in the annual Disney lineup, the Epcot® International Festival of the Arts is the perfect place for painters, performers, and all other patrons of the arts. Filled with live performances and exclusive workshops, this event can inspire both the smallest and the seasoned creators in your crowd. Here’s how you can celebrate art in every form at the festival this year on January 18–February 25.
Eat Your Art Out
Feed your appetite for food and knowledge at one of the festival’s seminars or workshops hosted by culinary artists. Watch as pro chefs turn a list of ingredients into a literal work of art and pick up some kitchen tricks to flabbergast your next guests. Or, simply enjoy the delectable options on the menu exclusive to the festival, including cheese boards, painted cookies, and much more.
Practice Your Brushstroke
During the festival, the world of Epcot turns into a never-ending art gallery. Watch and learn from featured artists as they create masterpieces right before your eyes with various displays of street art. As you stroll through the park, stop and stare at amazing paintings, drawings, and other works of pure passion. Take selfies or group photos to decorate your social media, and take home festival merchandise to decorate your personal space.
If you want to make your mark at this artistic event, join a workshop or complimentary seminar and pick up top tips from talented artists. With lessons for everyone and for every skill, these guided classes are fun and easy for all ages. After attending a creative workshop, you can walk away with your own work of art and take some new skills with you.
Let the Shows Go On
From theatrics to acrobatics, art is taking over at Epcot. Fortunately, you don’t have to stop in your tracks to catch a show-stopping act, because live performers will be spread throughout the park to provide constant entertainment. Countless artists liven up the stage with live concerts, while other performers sing classic Disney songs with a Broadway twist as part of the Disney on Broadway Concert Series.
