Cornucopia, presented by BlueShore Financial gives you plenty of reasons to head out into the crisp, fall nights. The 22nd edition takes place November 8 – 18 and tickets are disappearing as quickly as the summer daylight.

Cornucopia’s Signature Tastings – a series of seven evening events – bookend the festival’s 11 days. For those looking to “VIP” the experience – Taste Whistler Sommelier Tours* has returned as an optional add-on for the two evenings. Taste Whistler sommeliers will engage, educate and entertain guests while guiding the way through the Tasting Room to a select group of wineries. Cornucopia’s Signature Tastings include:

House Party: Best of BC (November 8)
Local favourite and perennial sellout, House Party: Best of BC features the best local talent – SIDECUT BBQ, home-grown vodka, micro-brewed beer and much more from BC’s land of plenty.

Cellar Door Grand Tasting (November 9)*
Fine wines and champagnes are the theme of this premium tasting event. Producers and winemakers un-cork their portfolio’s special bottles for an evening of sampling and savouring.

Crush Grand Tasting + Crush Early Entry (November 10)*
Cornucopia’s flagship event – and the highlight for Saturday night – Crush Grand Tasting returns. For those looking for an early access, upgrade to Crush Early Entry.

With a Twist Silent Disco (November 11)
Don those headphones (provided upon entrance) and choose your channel – each playing from three DJ’s showcasing their music mix alongside local mixologists showcasing their liquid of choice.

The Picnic (November 15)
The Picnic leads the way into the second weekend – blend of talents, tastes, and toasts – a perfect accompaniment to an exceptional festival.

Night Market: Taste the World (November 16)
A festival favourite – Night Market takes guests on a casual “round the world” tasting of street-style cuisine with a selection of beverages to suit.

Poured Grand Tasting (November 17)
The all-encompassing drink event – from wine, BC craft beer, Canadian cider or spirits – the perfect finale to the signature tasting offerings.

For a preview of the talent behind Cornucopia’s various events, seminars, dinners and demonstrations – look no further than the Masterclass Series, a video collection showcasing chefs, sommeliers and mixologists from Whistler’s signature bars and restaurants. Each video is designed to excite, educate and offer the viewers just a taste of what can be experienced at Whistler’s favourite fall festival. Themes include mixing the perfect infused G+T, building the ultimate charcuterie platter, making a cauliflower-crusted vegetarian pizza, professional wine tasting tips and more. Additional videos are currently in production with releases up to the festival opening.
