Snow levels are building on the runs at Whistler Blackcomb in BC, as temperatures dip to more seasonal levels, and lower. But while skiers and snowboarders wait for opening day on Nov. 24, others are more focused on the culinary treats on offer at the Cornucopia event during this late shoulder season.
The fall festival of food and drink kicked off on Nov. 4, and will run until Nov. 27. This year, Cornucopia has evolved to incorporate distinct experiences that reflect trends of the epicurious.
This means that, while festival favourites like “Taste of the World” and “House Party: Best of BC” are still on the schedule, there are new signature events to be experienced, such as “Drag Me To Brunch” and the Cornucopia Fall Feast by the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre.
There is also an impressive line-up of over 40 drink seminars that will be led by industry experts who will share their knowledge and refine the palates of those eager to learn. New and noteworthy seminars include “A Closer Study of the Lillooet Terroir,” “A Day in the Life of Café Culture” and “Must Have Agave.”
Cornucopia once again taps into a wide swath of expertise across North America’s food and beverage sector to present this unique event. Cornucopia packages combine exclusive rates on both accommodations and event tickets, starting from $99 per person, per night. Those who book three-plus nights will receive a $100 dining voucher.
