Dine Out Vancouver Festival 2020

Still Looking for the Perfect Gift? 
We Have Just the Ticket!

If you have a wine and food lover on your shopping list, we have a holiday gift suggestion that’s bound to be well received. Dine Out Vancouver’s The Great Big Taste on Thursday, January 16 2020 will pair bites from some of Vancouver’s top chefs with BC wine, craft beer, and spirit samples. Tickets to the event, which takes place the night before the festival opens, are $89 all in, making it a great gift…and maybe a post-holiday treat for yourself as well, to brighten up your January calendar.


The food and drink at The Great Big Taste will be first-class, but the evening is all about enjoyment, so leave your pinchy shoes at home. Guests will roam freely at the casual grazing-style event, with a DJ spinning tunes and the opportunity bid on culinary-themed items in a silent auction. The event is held in partnership with the Wines of British Columbia, and will feature the following restaurants and drinks:
