With summer in touching distance, we're starting to compile our bucket list to make sure we hit up all our favourite events once t-shirt weather finally arrives. Since eating and drinking in the sunshine scores pretty high, we have our sights set on the Wine & Spirit Festival; a two-day spectacle set to transform Sugar Beach into a tropical paradise on June 14 and 15. 

The first and only Toronto festival of its kind will return for its eleventh year, bringing 150 of the world's best wine, beer, cider and spirit producers together for an al fresco weekend bash that's not to be missed. In addition to sampling your favourite tipples and finding some new favourites, Wine & Spirit Festival has two free interactive school sessions to keep you entertained. 

Shake things up at a free Cocktail Class, where experienced bartenders will show you how to take your drinks to the next level. If cocktails are your thing, you can also check out the Cocktail Cage Match on Saturday and watch mixologists go head to head – then help crown the winner.  

At the Food and Wine School, talented chefs will be whipping up delicious dishes and showing you how to pair them with the perfect beverage. Seating is limited and offered on a first-come-first-served basis, so consult the schedule to make sure you don't miss out.

On top of all that, there's a silent disco plus live performances from bands throughout the weekend, so you can pair your booze with great tunes. Grab your tickets here and start planning your visit now.

To celebrate the Wine & Spirit Festival, we're giving away a pair of VIP Experience passes worth $75 each. The passes give guests entry to the festival plus access to special complimentary beverages and food from VIP vendors when you visit their booth. The winner will be able to choose Friday or Saturday passes.
