The Victoria Whisky Festival 2021 is scheduled to run from January 14th through January 17th, 2021 at the Hotel Grand Pacific. Due to the CoVid-19 pandemic and the restrictions that have evolved over the last number of months, the 2021 Festival has been reconfigured significantly. The Festival will hold a limited number of Masterclasses & Grand Tastings per day and where required presenters will conduct their events remotely. The VIP and Consumer Tastings will not be held at the 2021 Festival. Please read carefully the CoVid-19 protocols listed below that have been adopted to ensure the health & safety of ticket holders, presenters, hotel staff and volunteers.

All events will take place in the Vancouver Island & Pender Island Ballrooms and ticket numbers will be strictly limited per event to ensure strict physical distancing. Both ballrooms will have their own dedicated entrances, exits & washrooms, and event start & end times will be staggered.

Tickets will be sold at the Strath online and from the Hotel Grand Pacific by telephone. As this is a very fluid situation please check our website for updates as we move through the remainder of 2020. The Festival will be enforcing all provincial health regulations.


If the Festival is cancelled due to Public Health Order ticket holders will be offered the choice of one of the following;

  1. 60% refund (of ticket face value)
  2. 100% donation to the Festival
  3. 100% credit applicable to the next Victoria Whisky Festival (anticipated to be in 2022)

Refunds will not be issued to those who fail to comply with Public Health Orders and who are asked to leave the Festival.
