This year marks the 20th anniversary of Whistler’s favourite fall festival Cornucopia, presented by BlueShore Financial – taking place November 10-20.
Ideally located in the majestic resort town of Whistler, B.C., this 11-day showcase fulfills its mission to put Whistler on the map as the must-experience food and drink mountain event, annually attracting more than 7,500 attendees and hundreds of key industry members and media.
Festival organizers have been working hard on this year’s event and have a few exciting announcements to share:
- 20th Anniversary Party at The Picnic: A Showcase of Whistler Culinary Excellence – join the celebration as the visionaries and talent of Whistler gather to host a blend of talents, tastes and toasts – cheers to 20 years!
- Cornucopia Kids! – a one-day program dedicated to bringing kids, parents and professionals together to share in the joy of cooking. Families team up with professional chefs where kids will learn where their food comes from, create their own meal – and with a little friendly competition – present and share with others.
- Cornucopia Wine Summit – where better to host a summit than in the mountains? This event brings together the experts — passionate producers, marketers, restaurateurs and industry insiders — to discuss topics relevant to the wine industry and its changing landscape, in a setting where those who have a common interest can share and debate.
Return visitors don’t fret, festival favourites – tasting events such as the flagship CRUSH Grand Tasting, winemaker dinners, chef’s luncheons, world-class after-parties and much more will round out the programming for Cornucopia.
