Get ready for Cornucopia


Blog by Nick Swinburne | October 21st, 2010


Have you bought your tickets for Cornucopia yet?

Well, if not, get on it because lots of events sell out fast at Whistler’s annual celebration of wine and food — running Nov. 11 to 14 this year.

In case you’re new to the resort, or recently got bonked on the head and are now suffering from amnesia, Cornucopia is one of Whistler’s signature events, offering a veritable buffet of workshops, seminars, industry wine tastings, parties, after parties and Epicurean happenings to tempt the gourmet in everyone.

New for this year’s incarnation of the festival is a change of venue for many seminars (with local restaurants hosting several sessions), an expanded House Party, and the return of a crowd favourite, Whistler’s Chef Challenge.

Of course you’ll also find the usual roundup of incredible events during the festival, including the Big Guns Winemaker Dinner at Araxi, Casino Royale at Ric’s Grill, and Cornucopia’s flagship event, the Crush Gala Grand Tasting, happening over two glamorous nights.
