Every year, Disneyland Resort Guests look forward to the Food and Wine Festival that will happen at Disney California Adventure Park. The Food & Wine Festival first began at California Adventure in 2006, but was stopped after 2010, when the major Cars Land construction began at the Park. The Festival was brought back in 2016 and was an immediate hit and seems to get a little longer each year. Unfortunately in 2020, the Festival ended less than two weeks after it started when the pandemic forced the theme parks to shut down.
Disneyland and Disney California Adventure were shut down for more than one year, not reopening until April 2021, meaning that a 2021 Food and Wine Festival would just not be possible. However, things have been moving in a positive direction for the Parks since the reopening, and Disney has now revealed that the popular Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will return in March 2022!
Disney Parks Blog made the exciting announcement, sharing:
In 2022, family and friends will come together to get a taste of what they’ve been missing at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! At the festival, you will be able to explore California regions and neighborhoods in a number of ways, from the delicious fare, to the vibrant entertainment, fun festival merchandise and more.
During the festival, you’ll get to taste your way through a dozen festival marketplaces that offer an assortment of mouthwatering bites and beverages for every palate. There will also be the option to purchase a Sip and Savor Pass to enjoy the unique marketplace offerings. Complimentary culinary demonstrations with local, celebrity and Disney chefs will return for the whole family to enjoy on Saturdays and Sundays during the festival. And for those looking to enhance their festival experience, special signature events will also be available to book and purchase, including the Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions, and Wine, Beer and Mixology Education & Tasting Seminars.
Entertainment will fill the festival’s stages, with live musical performances at the Palisades Stage and Paradise Gardens Bandstand, visits with Chef Goofy and friends, and craft activities.
The Food & Wine Festival will take place daily beginning March 4 and running through April 26. Access to the Food & Wine Festival is included with the cost of admission to California Adventure Park.
