It’s springtime which means the annual Food & Wine Festival at Disney’s California Adventure is here for its second year. With winemaker dinners, beer tasting seminars, California sourced cuisine, food booths and celebrity chefs the event is a hit!
We were recently at the park and had a great time visiting all the food and wine booths featuring ingredients native to California. I loved the lemon cauliflower, French onion wagyu burgers and Korean BBQ tacos! We saw people throughout the park trying craft beers and flights of wine. There was even special entertainment to enjoy!
Celebrity chefs scheduled to appear during the Festival include Guy Fieri, Robert Irvine, Cat Cora, Duff Goldman, Emily Ellyn and Keegan Gerhard.
In addition to the culinary demonstrations and seminars, guests will enjoy an exciting musical program with many eclectic bands that add an authentic “California vibe” to the Festival. Children ages 3 to 11 may join in all the fun with the popular complimentary Junior Chef experience (led by Chef Goofy, and available on a first-come, first-seated basis), and the Jammin’ Chefs, who serve up tasty rhythms with pots and pans that really get cooking with the help of sous chefs Chip ‘n Dale.
Signature Events, which require a separate ticket, include “In the Kitchen with …” on Saturdays from 6 to 7 p.m., Sweet Sundays on select Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and Winemaker or Brewmaster Dinners Thursdays from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
There are two more weeks to go. The event runs through April 16th. Click Here to get tickets and details on the Disneyland Resort site.
