Midnight Hour at Food & Wine
After a hiatus because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Food & Wine Festival at Disney California Adventure is back! This event was cut short in 2020 because of COVID and was cancelled last year while the parks were still closed. But this year, with conditions much better (thanks, vaccines!), the fan favorite is back. As usual, there's an assortment of food stands, event merchandise, and culinary talks and demonstrations. And there's also live entertainment, taking place at the Paradise Park main Palisades Stage and the Paradise Gardens Grandstand.
Our focus today is the main stage, and one of four bands schedule to play here over the course of the next seven and a half weeks. Midnight Hour, a primarily 1960s soul and blues cover band seen playing the Downtown Disney stage as recently as the previous weekend as part of Disney's Celebrate Soulfully event during Black History Month, brought their grooving beats and tributes to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, The Supremes, and more to Paradise Park, delivering several fantastic performances to afternoon and evening fans. This quintet combined great jams, smooth vocals, and fantastic energy to create a great show. Catch along with the Tina Aldana Band, The Filharmonic, and Phat Cat Swinger at the Palisades Stage for this year's DCA Food & Wine Festival!
