Whistler Cornucopia Festival 2013
The 2013 Cornucopia food and wine festival is being held over 11 packed days this year. BlueShore Financial have worked to add more events and more days to meet the demand.
Heading into its 17th year and running from November 7th to 17th, wine from all over the world will be making an appearance as well as renowned sommeliers and chefs showing their wares, including DJ Kearney, Harry McWatters and Keith Nicholson.
