FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Whistler Village Beer Festival (WVBF) is excited to announce a new shuttle service for 2017’s event, which will make it easier for out of towners to catch a safe ride to Whistler. The round-trip shuttle service will be available for both days of the Main Event (Sat. Sept. 16 and Sun. Sept. 17) from Squamish and North Vancouver.
WVBF has teamed up with Canadian Craft Tours, who will be providing this service. Shuttles are just $25 round trip from Squamish or $50 from North Vancouver. One way trips or shuttle service over multiple days can also be made available upon special request. The Squamish Beer Festival, which recently took place on July 8th, used Canadian Craft Tours to provide this service and WVBF organizers took note.
“For our fifth anniversary, we want to make it as easy as possible for out of towners to make their way to Whistler and join us as we celebrate the love of beer,” says Tara Myers, Partnerships and Events Manager. “We’ve been looking to work with the right organization to help us make this option available and liked what we saw with Canadian Craft Tours. Now there’s a safe and reliable option for people who just want to come check out our festival for the day or weekend. We’re excited to see how popular this option is in 2017 and may look to add additional times or days in future years.”
The WVBF Main Event will happen on Sat. Sept. 16 and Sun. Sept. 17 from12pm to 5pm at Whistler Olympic Plaza. The shuttle service will leave from North Vancouver both days at 10am sharp and from Squamish at 11:10am sharp. The shuttle will leave Whistler both days at 5:15pm. Anyone catching the shuttle is encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early.
