EPCOT International Festival of the Arts kicks off on January 14th and will run through February 21st, 2022. This is always an enjoyable festival for me, with a variety of art forms being celebrated throughout the park. Jeremy Schoolfield on the Disney Parks Blog gave some more details on what we will expect this year, including about the Disney on Broadway Concert Series that will include dining packages (more information can be found starting December 14th on those at ArtfulEPCOT.com). There will be three shows each evening. Read below for more festival details!

15 Food Studios will be found throughout World Showcase – including two new ones called Deco Delights and The Craftman’s Courtyard. A Foodie Guide for the Festival will be posted in early January!
Schoolfield says, Guests can also join the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine – a fun food stroll highlighting five sweet and savory offerings listed in the Festival Passport. Once guests have purchased and received a stamp for all five items, they’ll earn a delectable Artist Palette Cookie.
There will be more than 100 Disney and visiting artists showcasing their works throughout EPCOT, including from the Disney Artist Gallery and the WonderGround Gallery.
Figment will be part of the festival merchandise collection.
From the Disney Parks Blog: Guests of all ages can watch imaginative chalk artists create masterpieces at Chalk Art Galleries, or improve their own artistic skills by learning how to draw a Disney Character at Animation Academy. Children can create their own chalk masterpieces at Kid’s Chalk Art and families can leave their artistic stamp on a larger-than-life mural at Expression Section: A Paint by Numbers Mural. Around World Showcase, guests can step into renowned paintings from centuries past in stunning Artful Photo Ops.
To experience EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, guests must have both valid admission and a park reservation for EPCOT on the same date.
