Whisky & Words

Each year the Vancouver Writers Fest hosts a whisky tasting event called Whisky & Words—previously A Dram Come True. Please join us at the 2022 Whisky & Words in support of the Vancouver Writers Fest’s youth education outreach programs.

Enjoy unlimited drams of whisky from distilleries around the world, including Scotland, Canada, and Japan, as well as American craft bourbon; you’ll find local craft spirits and beer, too. Delight in a stellar silent auction while tasting bites from local Vancouver restaurants and enjoying live music. Who knew you could have so much fun and support local arts and culture at the same time?

Ticket prices start at $105 for General Admission Holiday Special tickets.

The Vancouver Writers Fest is a registered, non-profit charity; as such, all ticket holders will receive a tax receipt for 75% of their ticket value.

In early 2022, we’ll be announcing a series of bespoke, pop-up Masterclasses that will take place on Granville Island in late April. Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Instagram for updates.
