Embrace the snowy season by checking out these world-class festivals, carnivals and other special events.
"It's like the holidays never ended!"
Overheard during the recent Winter Okanagan Wine Festival at B.C.'s Sun Peaks resort (pictured), this jubilant exultation summed up the 10-day affair. Tasting parties, expert-led seminars and food-and-wine soirees — including one unique event dedicated to vino and grilled-cheese — began less than a week after the holiday season came to a close. But far from showing signs of festive fatigue, many events were sold out, proving once again that fine B.C. vintages, fresh local cuisine and world-class snow sports are an alluring combination.
It also goes to show that there's no need to hibernate when temperatures dip across the Great White North. If you're looking to party like it's minus 99 — which thankfully, it probably isn't — the 10 events that follow offer everything from G-rated family fun to adults-only debauchery.
