The 2017 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival will be taking place every day March 10 through April 16, 2017. That’s right, this year it is JUST on the weekends!
Guests will be able to enjoy several marketplace booths featuring California cuisine, as well as culinary and beverage demonstrations, and special celebrity chef experiences.
Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Marketplaces
Disneyland has yet to announce the menus for this year, but once they do we’ll be sure to share them with you. We’re hoping to see the return of last years and some new addition of new booths.
Last year’s marketplaces included LAstyle, The Vineyard, Wince Country, Gold Rush, ¡Viva Fresca!, The Brewhouse, The Farm, and By the Bay.
We will be bringing back our printable Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival Checklist!
