It’s one of Whistler’s biggest events of the year – and this year it just got bigger. Whistler’s 17th Annual Cornucopia food and wine festival is on now and there’s lot of new stuff happening. Usually held for only one weekend, this year the festival has expanded to a full 11 days and two weekends. Sponsored by North Shore based BlueShore Financial, the event is known for its famous winemakers’ dinners, tasting seminars and wild after parties. This year’s version however has a mellower tone. Putting the focus back on the wine, attendees and guests can walk from event to event with ease and experience all that Whistler has to offer before the big ski season hits. The festival continues all this weekend.

No wigging out here. Crush tasting gala is Whistler’s premiere event at Cornucopia and a great place for a girlfriend’s night out.
