Festival of the Arts Report - 2017

Today we attended the media event for Epcot's new "Festival of the Arts" event which runs weekends (Fri-Mon) January 13th - February 20th.

Now before you might be all "Wait, another festival at Epcot???" please remember that between Christmas and Flower & Garden, there isn't really anything going on at Epcot, *AND* Disney used to hold an event called "Festival of the Masters" at Downtown Disney which featured Florida local and Disney artists to come display and sell their items for one weekend. This festival ran for I believe 38 years until the construction of Disney Springs caused the event to be put on hiatus.

Now, this new event at Epcot is basically the "spiritual successor" to Festival of the Masters but it is also expanded in many ways. First off, the event runs several weekends, not just one. The "arts" features more than just "artwork" it showcases paintings, photography, food, and musical theater. (yay! for the last part!)

We had a really good time at the event today and I look forward to this becoming yet another Epcot festival tradition that grows and changes over the years! Here's the photos & a video from today's event! (make sure you watch the video with the sound up!)

This morning we are checking out the brand new Festival of the Arts!

We've got our media credentials, event passport, and park guide and ready to check out this new event!

Disney artist Larry Dotson signing his amazing artwork in Norway today!

If you remember Festival of Masters that used to be at Disney Springs this event is very similar. And we think that's GREAT!

The folks from Pop Gallery at Disney Springs have a booth with artists signing their work every weekend!

We LOVE Walt Disney World events that include food booths! Here's a couple you'll see around Festival of the Arts.
