Art on the Lake… literally

Art on the Lake… literally

The event of the summer is back! At the south end of Alta Lake, August 5 | Everyone welcome!

 Join us for a FREE family-friendly afternoon on Alta Lake, immersed in nature and surrounded by local art and music. Bring your kayak, canoe, paddleboard or boat, or rent from one of Whistler’s adventure rental companies, and enjoy an entertaining paddle around Alta Lake. Arts Whistler transforms the lake’s south end into a floating art exhibit featuring docks with live music, live painters and art from 35+ local artists on display. Enjoy the sounds of local musicians as they perform around and on the lake, as it all comes together to create Art on the Lake…literally!
