Thank you to all who attended and supported the 2022 Bacchanalia Gala Dinner + Auction, presented by National Bank Private Banking 1859.

The 2023 Gala will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Mark your calendars!

One of the most spectacular wine and food events in the city – an evening of incredible wine, inventive food pairings, and unparalleled opportunities to enhance your wine cellar.

The evening kicked off with a sparkling wine reception at 6 p.m. and featured nine additional outstanding wines paired with an exquisite five-course menu prepared by the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s culinary team, led by Executive Chef David Baarschers.  The evening was topped off with music and dancing.  Live and silent auctions throughout the evening featured rare wines, epicurean getaways and unique culinary experiences featuring chefs and sommeliers from the West Coast’s top restaurants.  A must for any serious wine collector!
