The EPCOT International Arts Festival will celebrate the visual, performing and culinary arts from January 14th to February 21st.

Over 100 Disney-affiliated artists and guests will showcase their art. Artists from the Disney Artist Gallery and WonderGround Gallery will work on new pieces alongside exhibits from the ACME Archives and POP Gallery.

All guests can learn to draw Disney characters at the Animation Academy. At the Chalk Art Galleries, imaginative chalk artists will work on pieces while guests watch and kids can add their own chalk art.

Broadway stars will perform Disney songs for three shows each night.

The festival will have 15 culinary studios filled with art-inspired food. Among these catering studios, Deco Delights and The Craftman’s Courtyard will debut their own artistic menus.

True to the spirit of Epcot, festival food will come from Italy, China, Japan, Mexico, France, Germany, Morocco and Canada. The festival coincides with Walt Disney World’s 18-month 50th anniversary celebration.
