Each spring at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, stunning topiaries and floral displays combine with fresh market flavors at the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. The festival takes place from March 1 through May 29, 2017, offering plenty to do and see for meeting attendees.

Located around Epcot, the festival boasts thirty million multi-hued blooms, 100-plus whimsical topiaries and nearly 1,000 native butterflies. Other offerings include gardening demonstrations and seminars with industry experts, and a “Garden Rocks” concert series with performances every weekend Friday though Monday, during the festival all included with regular theme park admission. And, best of all, with specially-priced Theme Park tickets, meeting and convention attendees can experience the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival in their free time, after their meetings end.

Attendees will enjoy a true “Farm-to-Table” experience at this popular festival with the debut of two new outdoor kitchens, bringing the total to 15 outdoor kitchens boasting a variety of fresh bites and savory selections. The kitchens include Urban Farm Eats, Pineapple Promenade, Fleur de Lys, Florida Fresh, Taste of Marrakesh, Hanami, The Smokehouse, Primavera Kitchen, Lotus House, Bauernmarkt, Jardin de Fiestas, La Isla Fresca, Cider House, Northern Bloom, and The Berry Basket.

While this renowned festival offers attendees the opportunity to sample a taste of flavors while enjoying beautiful floral displays, it also offers exclusive opportunities for meeting professionals. Featuring built-in engagement, networking opportunities and culinary delights, the festival itself serves as the perfect backdrop for special group experiences that can easily be incorporated into a conference agenda or overall group program:

  • Access to Festival Seminars – Give attendees access to the plethora of festival events with specially-priced Theme Park tickets. Available exclusively for meeting and convention attendees, these tickets serve as the perfect option to experience all the festival has to offer.

Inspired by the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, this event theme combines fresh ingredients and rustic décor to celebrate the natural beauty and freshness of field and farm.
