This is Whistler's Celebration of Wine and Food. The event takes place from November 10th to 13th over the long weekend.  Come to Whistler and enjoy this amazing weekend which features a variety of hands-on seminars, gala tasting events, winemaker's dinners and famous after-parties.  Cornucopia is a treat for the senses whether you are an experienced gourmet or just appreciate fine food and wine.  The event features local and regional restaurants, producers, breweries and wineries.  Cornucopia is now recognized as the "West Coast's premier resort-based epicurean extravaganza".

Cornucopia Events Galore

Highlights of Cornucopia include the CRUSH Gala Grand Tasting held Friday and Saturday evening at the Whistler Conference Centre.  CRUSH is the flagship tasting event of Cornucopia and you will have the opportunity to sip, sample and savor your way through dozens of wineries.  Wines come from all over the world from Old World classics to New World favourites.

After the CRUSH tastings each evening there will be an after party. Dance late into the night, surrounded by gorgeous cabaret girls, stilettos and sequins, glamour and glitz!  More details about the after parties will be available later.

Other highlights of the weekend include the winemaker's dinner. Select Whistler restaurants and their winery partners will prepare a special wine pairing menu for the Cornucopia weekend.  During the day there are a number of seminars, tastings and even a Chef's trip to North Arm Farm in Pemberton.
