ALL of the Entertainment at the 2022 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival

Today is the first day of one of the BIGGEST festivals in Disney World!

2022 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival

It’s the start of the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, and we are so STOKED to eat ALL the food, participate in some of the fun activities, and check out all the entertainment, which includes the return of the Eat to the Beat concert series this year! 

So let’s take a look at ALL the entertainment this year’s festival is offering.

Let’s start with the Eat to the Beat concert series, which is returning to the festival for the first time since 2019. This concert series brings in a host of performers from the past and present to entertain guests during the festival. Expect to see Boyz II Men, Taylor Dayne, Hanson, and more throughout the festival. Be sure to check out the full schedule here! Concerts are performed at the America Gardens Theater at the American Adventure pavilion.

Aside from the Eat to the Beat concerts, many of the pavilions around World Showcase (and the rest of EPCOT) offer entertainment throughout the day, and we were able to catch some of the performances!

Like with previous festivals, the JAMMitors will be out banging their drums for guests and entertaining them in a way only they can. We saw them today over in the World Discovery neighborhood, by the Connections Cafe and Eatery and Club Cool! You can catch these guys making their trash can beats about once per hour.


Over on the Canada Mill Stage, we spotted Alberta Bound, a Canadian band! They perform regularly in the Canada pavilion and during their performance, you can catch traditional fiddling and songs written by Canadian songwriters.

You’ll also be able to catch the Voices of Liberty inside the American Adventure Pavilion — they perform daily there! The group sings a capella, and you’ll hear familiar American ballads, along with a few Disney ones, as well! Showtimes can be found in My Disney Experience.

Other entertainment we saw was Mariachi Cobre, which is a mariachi group that we saw performing in the Mexico pavilion. They perform traditional folk music from a town called Jalisco, Mexico. You can check their showtimes in My Disney Experience.

We also saw, over in the Morocco pavilion, Mo’Rockin performing!


Over in the Japan pavilion, we saw the iconic Matsuriza drummers! They were playing their massive drums in the shade of one of the buildings in the pavilion. This entertainment offering is not exclusive to the Food and Wine Festival, and you can catch these drummers most days about once per hour.
