Expert comment: Murphy calls these great value events that deliver year after year and this year there are more of them than ever.

"We're seeing this continuity of aspects of the festival that deliver year over year," Murphy says of these very popular dinners.

Smith says the dinners are the ultimate experience during Cornucopia.


The first annual night market will bring an Asian-inspired noodle market from the streets of Shanghai and Shinjuku to Whistler. Sample different drinks with pan-Asian cuisine.

Where: Whistler Conference CentreWhen: Sunday from 7 to 10pmCost: $35Threads: Whistler casual

Expert comment: This is a concept organizers have wanted to do for some time and this is the year, says Murphy.

"For only $35 it gets you into the room with a plate, fork and glass," Smith. She adds that next year the night market will feature another region from somewhere around the world.
