Every year, Disney creates thousands of topiaries and beautifies the entirety of EPCOT as they prepare for the popular Flower and Garden Festival. Much like the International Food and Wine Festival and the Festival of the Arts, the Flower and Garden Festival has food booths and a number of special happenings that take place throughout the festival. One of the most anticipated events at the Flower and Garden Festival is the Garden Rocks Concert Series — which features a number of well-known acts that come down to the Most Magical Place on Earth.
