For those with a worldly sense of adventure and a taste for the exotic, nothing comes more recommended than the Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. A spectacular journey filled with sights, sounds, and tastes of cultures all over the world awaits you and your family at this much-anticipated event. 2020 brings the Festival’s 25th Anniversary, and with over 20 individual marketplaces, there is no shortage of delectable cuisines and beverages for the world traveler at heart.
Expert chefs from around the world assemble in a grand tour of taste sensations the likes of which you have never experienced. Here are some tantalizing examples and hungry highlights:
- African Eats. Hearty, flavorful meals from the motherland include Piri Piri skewered shrimp with a delightful citrus-flavored couscous.

- Japanese Delicacies. Fresh offerings from the Land of the Rising Sun include authentic sushi and teriyaki chicken in a steamed bun. And for the adults, the strawberry sake is sure to please.
Infectious performances line the streets of this flavorful festival. The JAMMitors bring world-class street performance and funky rhythms with familiar everyday objects as instruments such as trash cans and tin cans. And with the romantic and upbeat sounds of traditional Mexican folk music, it is impossible not to smile when Mariachi Cobre hits the stage.
Hide and Squeak Scavenger Hunt
While Food and Wine can be a fabulous time for the grown-ups, there is plenty of fun to be had for the younger globetrotters as well. Purchase map and stickers at any participating merchandise location to help Remy round up the required ingredients for his renowned dish.
