Being a fan of all things related to Epcot, I can’t wait to attend the Epcot International Festival of the Arts this month. This all-new event is a trifecta of global masterpieces: combining visual, culinary and performing arts for six colorful weekends from January 13 – February 20. Today, I have a first look at commemorative merchandise guests will find during this ultimate cultural celebration.
Guests attending this year’s inaugural event will find a variety of shirts featuring one of my favorite characters, Figment from Epcot’s Journey Into Imagination attraction.
We’ve also created a shirt for Annual Passholders that includes a small image of Figment on the left sleeve. This shirt will only be sold to Passholders who present a valid Annual Pass.
Other items will include a large poster of Epcot concept artwork by Herb Ryman along with a tote bag, a coffee mug, and a TERVIS tumbler.
Finally, I have a look at artwork from several artists who will be appearing throughout the festival including Jason Grandt, David Buckley, Jerrod Maruyama, Kristin Tercek, to name a few.
The best place to find original artwork from these and other artists is the Odyssey Festival Showplace located in the Odyssey building near the entrance to World Showcase.
The Epcot International Festival of the Arts will run Fridays through Mondays.
I hope to see you there!
