The 2021 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival gets underway next month, and Disney has today shared a few more details about what we can expect this year.

Global Marketplaces will include fan-favorite dishes from Hawai’i, Australia, Germany, Canada and Greece. New Global Marketplace concepts are coming to Morocco, The American Adventure and throughout the park in July, with more marketplaces opening in the fall. Menus are still to be announced.

Entertainment will feature performances by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and Jammin’ Chefs. The festival will also open with America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare, a live-music concert series performed Friday through Monday evenings. Local bands from across Central Florida will take to the America Gardens Theatre stage, playing popular songs of yesterday and today.

Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt returns, and Emile’s Fromage Montage earns you a prize at Shimmering Sips after sampling 5 dishes from select Marketplaces.

This year's event begins July 15 and runs through to November 20 2021, which is very similar in length to last year's festival.

This is a close to what it might be, promising, but a dead end...

Does anyone know if the band for August 20 thru 23, "The Vybe", is that old acapella group they used to have in the early 2000s? I can't find anything on this band.

WDW has been advertising lately on getting more to apply to work in the parks.

That is what the Epcot after 4pm ticket was for.

I’ve always wondered why Disney didn’t open the showcase for a dining experience in the evening. Opportunity to bring in a paying adult crowd for dining using the Boardwalk entrance (small charge for entrance). They could’ve figured out a way to block off entrance to the ride section and use technology for ride access.

Even with lower attendance, the extra booths would have been nice when I was there this past weekend. Some lines were quite lengthy. This will help (bummed I missed out on the Indian booth, though!)
