Wee Tipple Party: Nanaimo’s Whisk(e)y Festival returns ~ A 19 year Tradition
Masterclasses add profile to the main event, The Grand Tasting

Crimson Coast Dance Society’s celebration of the ‘nectar of the gods’ returns after a two year pause. The 19th Annual Wee Tipple Party: Nanaimo’s Whisk(e)y Festival, takes place Saturday, March 4th, 7:00pm-10:00pm, at The Grand Hotel. The evening offers a range of whiskies from blends to single malt scotches. Sophistication with a splash of humour, live music and hors d’oeuvres by the inimitable talents of Chef Ian Ter Veer make it one of Nanaimo’s most elegant events – finally a chance to get dolled up.

Proceeds of this Fundraising event support the work of Crimson Coast Dance, ensuring inclusive and accessible access to contemporary dance performances and programs in the Central Vancouver Island region

“Take the elevator home” at The Grand Hotel.  Ask for your Wee Tipple rate and make a weekend of it!
