Concerts Returning to This Year’s EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival!

The working day that menus are introduced for a new EPCOT competition is generally a great 1. I suggest, ’round listed here, it is a chaotic a single, but it is undoubtedly also a fantastic one particular. It is enjoyment to see what the chefs at Walt Disney World are cooking up for us, and it is similarly fun seeking to plot out a prepare of assault for gobbling down as numerous of the distinctive pageant food items things as humanly doable.

Tucked in and amongst all of the details relating to the Out of doors Kitchens and the meals goods this morning was a very little nugget of facts that I feel I’m most excited about. And feel it or not, it has very little to do with food stuff. Shocker, I know.

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the EPCOT festivals have not involved the ordinary concert-design and style stay entertainment solutions that they generally would. I was not at all stunned that they weren’t involved in the course of past year’s Style of EPCOT Intercontinental Foodstuff and Wine Competition or Flavor of EPCOT International Competition of the Holidays (oh, Candlelight Processional, how we skipped ye). I also wasn’t astonished that the Broadway stars did not make appearances for the duration of 2021’s Taste of EPCOT International Pageant of the Arts as they have in decades past. That becoming claimed, the live shows are 1 of the items that I have missed the very most.

During ordinary several years, various instances for the duration of each and every pageant, I would make my way back to the America Gardens Theatre to sit or stand and sing and clap alongside with some of my favourite artists. Whether it was the Try to eat to the Beat Concert Sequence all through Food stuff and Wine or the Backyard garden Rocks Live performance Sequence for the duration of Flower and Garden Competition didn’t issue. Just remaining ready to sit there and delight in 30-minute mini concert events supplied by unbelievable musicians even though sitting in the middle of my most loved Walt Disney Entire world concept park was my own minimal slice of Shangri-La.

Declared this morning was that, in addition to the performances of Voices of Liberty and Mariachi Cobre, protect bands who are nearby to the Orlando location will offer concert-design performances. Even though they’re not some of my beloved artists (yet), these bands will deliver live shows back again to the theatre, and I could not be happier.

The go over bands will carry out audio of their certain style, regardless of whether it be 80’s pop, Motown soul or Latin beats. As we’ve witnessed in the theatre as a result significantly, bodily distancing requirements and safety actions will be adhered to. The Orlando cover bands likely will not garner the crowds that some of the artists commonly slated to perform on the stage would, which is probable portion of the reasoning guiding possessing them accomplish. It’s a way to collectively dip our toes in the drinking water and see how it goes. I, for one, hope it is a strike.

Connect with me a sentimentalist, I’m alright with that I’ve acquired wide shoulders. I’ve experienced the 2020 Garden Rocks functionality calendar on the side of my fridge for a 12 months. From time to time, I stop and read through by the artists who ended up slated to conduct in advance of the entire world stopped. Present day news, in my head, is a step towards normalcy, and I am grateful. Child methods can also be massive ways, right?
