While Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today, meaning six more weeks of winter…it appears that there’s only four more weeks until spring at Walt Disney World.

The annual springtime event, the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival kicks off on March 1 and will run for 90 days – through May 29. That’s 90 days of flowers, topiaries, food, demonstrations, seminars, and yes, the Garden Rocks Concert Series.

In the past, the Garden Rocks Concert Series (which was formerly known as the Flower Power Concert Series) was performed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings during the festival, but this year, the artists will also perform on Monday nights too! Concerts take place at the America Gardens Theatre in the American Adventure Pavilion.

This year, many favorite performers will be returning, but there will also be quite a few new artists from the ’60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s ready to rock! Here is this year’s line up:

  • March 3-4 – Jon Secada – “Just Another Day
  • March 5-6 – Dennis DeYoung – The Music of STYX – “Grand Illusion
  • March 10-13 – Pointer Sisters – “I’m So Excited
