Autumn is just around the corner, which means Cornucopia, Whistler’s annual food and wine festival will be back in town. This 11-day will run from November 6 – 16, 2014, a hop and skip away from the opening of ski season. This Whistler festival is the place to be, and be seen, offering a well-rounded event line-up with dinners, seminars, gala tastings and after-parties.
