Garden Rocks Performers Announced for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

Hi everyone!

The 2017 Epcot “Garden Rocks” performers have been announced for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. The concert days have been expanded to include Monday this year (it used to be every day, but then cut back to weekends Friday – Sunday). It is nice to see it the additional day this year! Some of the performers play all weekend, some split it with a different artist. Show times are at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m. & 8 p.m. each night and the concerts are included with Epcot admission. Some of our favorites here are Night Ranger, Starship starring Mickey Thomas and Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone.
