Thank you for your interest in the Vancouver International Wine Festival.
As per government directives, our office is closed, but we are fully operational with staff working remotely. You can see general VanWineFest updates here.
Please note that we are delaying the application period for the 2021 festival, (May 1-31). With the current provincial state of emergency and ongoing global uncertainty, we felt it would be impractical to open applications and ask for submissions at this time. While it is difficult, given the rapidly changing social restrictions and guidelines, to make concrete assurances, we are currently working under the assumption that the 2021 VIWF festival will be able to go ahead as scheduled for February 20-28, 2021. We are revising our timelines with that end in mind and will keep you up to date if circumstances change.
Board and staff are working together to envision what that festival might look like, and we will update our 2021 plans and timelines by May 15.
For additional information, please contact Visnja Vukelich, Administrative Director.
