Get Ready For Cornucopia
Cornucopia Whistler is an 11 day food, wine and culture festival held in Whistler, B.C from November 6 - 16. The event takes place throughout Whistler at various restaurants, bars, and the Whistler Conference Centre. The festival is a must attend for the foodie and wine and liquor enthusiast.
What makes Cornucopia so special is the vast number of events to choose from. There are some 160 events to choose from, giving food and wine enthusiasts a buffet of choices. During the event participants will have access to top chefs, representatives from various wineries and liquor distributers, health and living consultants and many more.
One of the hardest things to decide during Cornucopia is which events to check out. For a starting point we recommend you visit the Cornucopia Schedule page and begin to sift through the names of events that pique your interest. Each event has a quick synopsis found at the 'learn more' link, giving you a brief overview of what to expect. A quick piece of advice: Popular events like the CRUSH Gala Grand Tasting, House Party: Best of BC and Top 25 Celebratory Reception sell out early so make sure to book as quickly as possible.
