VIWF Operational, But Office Closed
Due to evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with due concern for the health and safety of employees and stakeholders, the Vancouver International Wine Festival has closed the office to the public until further notice. The BMO Theatre Centre is also closed to the public, including the offices and studios of our charitable beneficiary, Bard on the Beach. Please call in advance if sending a courier, so we can confirm if someone will be available to receive a package.
Staff are working remotely with attendance in the festival office on a need-only basis. We are monitoring the situation and will proceed according to recommendations from health officials, as well as governmental state of emergency directives.
We continue to plan for 2021, but are mindful of the need for the festival to reflect both the local and global situation, both now and in the near future. We will provide additional updates as timelines and strategies develop. In the meantime, please keep enjoying your favorite festival wines and follow us on social media to find out ways to experience virtual tastings, keep abreast of industry news, and learn how to support our community.
