The 2022 Flower and Garden Festival will run for 125 days, with festival dates from March 2nd, 2022, to July 4th, 2022. Guests of EPCOT will enjoy the fresh fragrance of flowers from all over the globe, cuisine with a flower and garden vibe, gorgeous gardens, tantalizing topiaries, and lots of entertainment. As in previous years, the 2022 Flower and Garden Festival will be one to enjoy over several days.

The dates of EPCOT’s 2022 Flower and Garden Festival coincide with part of the 18-month-long “Most Magical Celebration on Earth,” commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort. As such, the 2022 Festival will include an exciting new main entrance topiary featuring a huge 50th anniversary-themed birthday cake alongside none other than Goofy himself!

AdventHealth will also be at the parks in the form of the presentation of the Health Full Trail. It will be located along the Imagination walkway. At the Health Full Trail, Guests can learn all about tips for being well and staying well. There will also be nearly 20 Outdoor Kitchens where Guests can sample cuisine with a “flower and garden” flair. These will be in addition to other dining locations at EPCOT at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Fan-favorite Disney character topiaries will be a huge part of the Festival, and the 2022 version will feature Lumiere and Cogsworth from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast inside the France pavilion, as well as Snow White and all seven Dwarfs at the Germany pavilion at EPCOT’s World Showcase. Each topiary is meticulously detailed and cared for throughout the Flower and Garden Festival.

Entertainment will also be a huge part of the Festival, as the Garden Rocks Concert Series makes its return for 2022. The series will be hosted at the America Gardens Theatre. Disney World will soon release more information about the musicians and bands that will perform as part of the series.
