Welcome to the 10th Annual Calgary Whisky Festival!

The 10th annual MS Whisky Festival will take place on January 19, 2023 at the Arts Commons. Roam the room while sampling from over 300 whiskies from more than 40 different vendors! 

As part of our ‘Master Class Series’, ticket holders can also take advantage of these classes to learn more about whisky from those who make it. The classes are designed to dive further into the whisky making process, from mashing to fermentation to distilling and of course drinking. Stay tuned for this year’s classes. You won’t want to miss out on these experiences!
