I wasn’t mixing them up, just talking about F&G in a FoA thread. I was merely off topic, but on purpose. No dementia yet…

I went presidents week in 2019, and Festival of the Arts was still ongoing the whole week. It ended the following Monday (week after Presidents week.

Don't care. I love the way Epcot looks during F&G. Well, not including the construction walls ...

I think you're getting Festival of the Arts (Jan-Feb) mixed up with Food and Garden (Mar- Jun).

Remember when there used to be people at F&G who talked about…what is it called? Gardening?

Guess there is no word if they are doing seminars like they did prior to 2020? Really enjoyed listening to the artists speak about their work and drawing a bit ourselves too.

This is the best festival! The food, the weather, the artwork. So much better than food and wine!

Glad it's back to what it was prepandemic. This is by far my favorite of the EPCOT festivals.

Planned a trip Jan 8-12 for this...so that's cool :facepalm:

The Festivals can start and end anytime Disney wants them to. I'm just surprised they're not taking account of projected crowds in their Festival schedule determinations: they're putting themselves in a position where they have to tear down a festival, transition, and set up a new one during the worst and most crowded week possible.

Well, they start F&G around 3/1 and need a week to switch. Isn’t it usually 6 weekends like this? Pres. Day is just the latest it can possibly be.

I still like Arts and Flower & Garden. Fairly unobtrusive. Food & Wine remains trash, however.

It's weird that they're ending it just before President's Day week this year. That week is always hugely crowded and now there will be less for people to do. (This is a change from prior years: up through and including last year, the Festival ended after President's Day week.) We'll be at Universal from 2/20-25 and were considering hopping over to Disney for a couple days later in the week (2/20 and 2/21, when the Festival will still be going on, won't work with our schedule) to use some complimentary tickets. I'll be sorry to miss the Festival of the Arts this time around.
