Celebrate the best food, wine and spirits from British Columbia and beyond during Cornucopia Whistler. Choose from over 100 wine and food events including winemaker dinners, interactive seminars, wine and spirit tastings, wellness events and electric after parties.
This November, Cornucopia celebrates 20 years as Whistler’s homage to this rugged land of plenty, and there’s plenty on offer indeed. Embracing the palate, the plate, and the Pacific North West, Cornucopia is a promise of warmth and welcome to all-comers amongst a convivium of global taste-makers.
Relying on the raw and rugged backdrop of the Pacific Coast Mountains to cleanse the senses and focus the palate, Cornucopia shines a light on the craft and talent chefs, vintners, brewers and distillers bring to bear on the basic elements of civilization – grapes, hops, the fruits of the sea and the soil.
Winery dinners, grand tastings, culinary demonstrations and events, industry gatherings - including the brand new Cornucopia Wine Summit, all running alongside Cornucopia's wellness micro festival, Nourish and the Cornucopia Kids cooking day, Cornucopia’s rich and wide-ranging 11 day and night program will deliver its fill of new discoveries and deeper connections with locally inspired and globally relevant ingredients, destinations, flavours and makers.
Witness the power of pairing – the primal and polished, the simple and the sophisticated, the disruptors and the discriminating – in a schedule packed with offerings that tear down the walls between kitchen and salon, back of house, back of truck and the long table, and brings farmers, fishers, chefs, brewers, vintners and connoisseurs together, united by taste and straight-up passion.
An 11 day festival of food and drink, Cornucopia brings together the wild and the refined, and puts the art of eating and drinking centre stage.
