Welcome to the WhiskyCast Calendar of Events!
2020 was a rough year for whisky events, with the Covid-19 pandemic forcing cancellations and postponements around the world. Now that vaccines are becoming available, here’s hoping that we’ll be able to get together in person soon. We’re listing virtual events on the calendar, along with details on live events planned for throughout 2021 and into 2022. While it’s impossible to list them all on one page, we want to help you find tastings and festivals in your area or wherever you may be traveling. Just click the “Search” button below to get started!
NOTE: As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person events on this calendar should be considered as tentative, since public health restrictions may force changes or cancellations at the last minute. We will keep this calendar as up to date as possible, but please make sure you check with the organizers of any event you’re planning to attend before making any travel plans. We also encourage you to please comply with any requirements for social distancing, masks, and travel restrictions. The more we work together to fight the spread of Covid-19, the sooner we’ll be able to enjoy whisky events together again!
Here are a few tips to make your search more efficient. If you know the name of a specific event, just enter it in the Name field and hit the search button. You can list specific dates in the Date box, but if you just enter a month, you’ll get all of the events for that month around the world. You can enter a city, state, or province in that field and receive all of the events in that area, and if you’re looking for events at a specific bar or other venue, just enter the name in the Venue field. You can also search by country (use “USA” and “UK” instead of “United States” or “United Kingdom”) or regions (USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and South America).
Finally, if you want to see the complete list of events, just leave all of the fields blank and hit the search button.
