Disney hasn’t made an official announcement, but based on the event page on their website it looks like the event will be back for 2018. International Festival of the Arts took place at Epcot this year for the first time ever. It spanned over 6 weeks on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only. The event showcased various art demonstrations including paintings, culinary experiences, pottery, musical entertainment and more. There were also various events that guests could pay extra for and attend to get a more hands on art experience.
The event seemed to get a strong response from guests, enough that it appears that we will get to experience it again next year. We aren’t sure if the event will be expanded to include week days, too, but we sure hope so. We can likely expect that there would be more events and experiences added to the 2018 event, too.
What did you all think of the inaugural event this year?
