Thank you for your interest in the Vancouver International Wine Festival.

The 2022 festival will run Monday, May 16 to Sunday, May 22 at the Vancouver Convention Centre and other venues around town, featuring tastings, winery dinners, lunches, and seminars. We were fortunate to be able to move our booking at VCC to later in the spring, which will enable us to have a longer lead time.

We are easing our way back to normal, so for the 2022 festival, there will be no theme region or global focus, giving agents and wineries flexibility in their submissions. We have decided to postpone our originally planned theme region of South America until 2023, so we can properly showcase the wineries and wines of South America and give them the spotlight they so richly deserve. As well, given the likely ongoing challenges with international travel, we will not be requiring a principal in attendance at events – though we will still welcome them with open arms (and proof of vaccination).

We are currently in the process of updating our guidelines and application process. There will be new procedures in place for the 2022 festival, which we are finalizing and will share with you soon.

If you would like to express your interest in participating, please contact Visnja Vukelich, Administrative Director.
