Experience Whistler's Cornucopia

Whistler is full of surprises. This iconic mountain resort, consistently ranked Number One in North America and home of the 2010 Olympics, actually receive more guests in the Summer. While it is known for its casual, active, outdoors lifestyle, its high-end residences and resorts hint at the affluent, global denizens that require the best available in goods and services.  Among its many year-round special events, easily searched on Tourism Whistler, the annual gourmet festival, aptly called “Cornucopia,” celebrates all of the finest in food and drink that Whistler has to offer.

Held in mid-November, the eleven days and nights of the Cornucopia event include a seemingly unending schedule of offerings under these headings: “Chef Table Luncheons,” “Drink Seminars,” “Industry and Educational Workshops,” “Parties,” “Signature Tasting Events,” “Culinary Series,” “Restaurant Events” and “Nourish Health and Wellness Seminars.”

At Cornucopia repeat attendees assert that the choices and quality increase yearly, so the biggest challenge is to plan ahead and make your selections early, as most events do sell out quickly.
