Art of the Cocktail banner

Tickets are now on sale for the Fifth Annual Art of the Cocktail, returning to Victoria from October 26 to 28. The Art of the Cocktail festival celebrates every facet of cocktail culture over three days of events, workshops, bartenders’ competitions, and tastings.


What started in 2008 as a fundraising event for the Victoria Film Festival, AofC has since grown into a three-day event, focusing on the revival of the lost craft cocktail culture.

Hop on the ferry or take Helijet for a three-martini lunch at the Fairmont Empress’ Bengal Lounge on October 26, or experience the Midnight Bartender’s Brunch at Veneto when the clock strikes 12.

The Grand Tasting ($50), AofC’s signature event, will be held at the Crystal Gardens on October 26, with partner restaurants and distilleries mixing and serving some of the area’s best boozy blends and culinary creations.

Grand Tasting VIP ticket holders ($70) will be able to experience an hour of token-free sampling before the start of the main event.
