Dine OutTM Vancouver Festival (DOVF) is Canada’s largest food and drink festival and features Vancouver’s restaurants, hotels and industry producers and suppliers.  It showcases the Vancouver’s culinary scene and the City as an international culinary travel destination.  The “events pillar” fulfills the objective of providing ‘epicureans’ with a 17-day schedule of unique and compelling culinary experiences.  Dine Out‘s well-recognized brand, widespread communications channels, and industry partnerships are leveraged to support the festival and drive locals and visitors to take part.

DOVF organizers wish to collaborate with various “Event Producers” in a joint effort to populate Dine OutTM Vancouver Festival’s Event Schedule.  If you are interested, there are a number of criteria that must be followed for DOVF brand integrity and for a seamless execution of the overarching guest experience.

When is it?  January 17 – February 2, 2020


A Dine OutTM Vancouver Festival Event is a culinary focussed experience that takes place during festival dates.  These may include a culinary tour, cooking competition, food inspired lectures/workshops, debates, cooking classes and demonstrations, farmer’s markets, farm to table dinners, Winemaker’s dinners, dinner theatre, food and fashion and pop-up restaurant events.

The events broaden the scope of the festival beyond the traditional three-course dinner component, and provide festival-goers unique tantalizing experiences they would not find anywhere else, at any other time of the year.

Festival events are listed at dineoutvancouver.com/events.  Producers (you) organize and handle ALL of the event details and logistics.  Dine Out Vancouver facilitates primary marketing and ticket sales.
