It’s that time of year! The days are getting shorter, kids are back to school, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing and so is Monday Night Football. We’re excited to introduce the new Food & Wine Tailgate Tasting hosted by ESPN’s Monday Night Football.

Running on select Mondays throughout the festival, the 45-minute program will pair tailgating-inspired food and beverages. Guests can enjoy a flight of three sample size food items inspired by the cities playing in the game each week along with three different beverages, while learning from culinary experts about how to prepare these dishes.

The Food & Wine Tailgate Tasting is a complimentary program and will be offered on September 17, 24 and October 1, 8 and 15 from 4:30-5:15 p.m. in the Festival Center. Guests interested in attending may pick up a wristband at the Festival Center starting at 9 a.m. each Monday for that day’s seminar. All guests must be present to receive their wristbands. Both wristbands and seating at the event are available on a first come, first serve basis.
