The EPCOT International Food and Wine festival takes place every day for several weeks in the fall. In 2013, the festival runs from September 27'th through November 11'th. 

For most people, the main part of the festival involves sampling food and wines from various kiosks that are temporarily set up around World Showcase.  The kiosks are themed to a particular country, region, or concept and offer food and wine samplings respectively.  Food samples are small appetizer portions.  The wine samplings are rather small as well.  The cost for each sampling is between $3 to $13.

There are also special food and wine demonstrations, pairings, and full dinners that are an additional charge and typically involve appearances by known chefs and sommeliers.

The official page for this festival is located here on the Walt Disneyworld website.
