The festival started back in 2003 with 57 restaurants offering three course menus at set price-points. Since then, it has grown to include more than 250 restaurants offering menus at $20, $30 and $40, along with over 80 culinary events, including a street food celebration, tasting tours of neighbourhoods, cooking lessons, and dinners that pair what’s on your plate with exotic beverages, art, or even a movie.
The list of restaurants offering Dine Out™ Vancouver menus is released on the festival’s website right at the beginning of January, and you’ll want to make your reservations right away as they get snapped up quickly! Tickets for special events are released at the beginning of December and can be purchased online.
The Dine Out™ Vancouver Festival also includes special hotel rates bookable through the site, Dine and Stay packages, and the Amuse Bouche Collection: escapes combining accommodation in some of the city’s best hotels with exclusive culinary experiences—the perfect Vancouver gourmet getaway.
