Celebrating Canada's 150th!

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 Bacchanalia Gala kicks off with a sparkling wine reception at 6 p.m., and features nine additional outstanding wines paired with an exquisite five-course menu prepared by the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s executive chef Cameron Ballendine.  All of this is topped off with live music and dancing.  And if that’s not enough, live and silent auctions throughout the evening feature extremely 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!

Sponsorship opportunities are available, including a Corporate Table rate, that include additional benefits at the Gala and at the Wine Festival as a whole. We are also always looking for donations of rare and collectible wines in exchange for a tax receipt. For more information, please contact Kelly Snider, Gala Manager: or 604-637-3098

All proceeds from the Bacchanalia Gala support Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival.
