Cornucopia: Guide for Arts & Culture Fans

Cornucopia: Guide for Arts & Culture Fans

Updated: October 2018

Fall is the season for arts and culture in Whistler, and Cornucopia presented by BlueShore Financial has plenty to offer those wanting to unleash their creativity or pick up a little culture along the way.

Food and drink is for consuming, yes, but every meal is also an opportunity for adventure. Why simply have dinner when you could travel the world with an international chef as your guide? Why sit in a pub when you could be painting a masterpiece, brush in one hand and glass of delicious red wine in the other? Why not pair a beverage with quick-witted comedy or funky beats?

Pip has somehow worked her way around from being a snow-and-bike bum to holding a real job while also being outdoors as much as possible. She’s collected scars, bikes for (almost) every occasion, a small trail dog and a love of craft beer plus a rudimentary understanding of skiing, snowboarding, sketching, and the art of chairlift conversations. She currently believes a combination of gravity, snow, dirt and rad people are what make Whistler tick but investigations are ongoing.
