Ready for something extremely cheesy?

The Canadian Cheese Rolling Festival returns to Whistler, this Saturday, Aug. 15. The premise is pretty straightforward.

They’re back…and the tables are longer than ever.

Whistler’s Araxi Restaurant & Oyster Bar has announced the dates for its 2015 Longtable Dinner Series. The popular events are notable for both their strikingly beautiful outside locations and their visual appeal.

Every year, the Whistler fine-dining establishment organizes some of the region’s most sophisticated picnics. A very long table–think 250 people seated from end to end–is set with white linens and wine glasses.

Then, strangers quickly become friends over an al-fresco meal served family-style.
