Arts Scene

Your guide to everything arts and Culture in Whistler and the Sea to Sky

We’ve taken a break from printing the Arts Scene guide due to scheduling uncertainties resulting from COVID-19 health restrictions and social gathering limitations. BUT we still want to share your events, whether they’re happening online or in smaller gatherings. Feel free to submit them as usual. We will add them to the online calendar and share them on social media as our limited resources allow.


Events, festivals, music, creative workshops and exhibits – check it out!

Also features Culture Maps so you can take yourself on a tour of cultural venues, art galleries, public art and check out local art exhibited in shops around town. The cover art always features a local artist; to find out more about them visit our blog and check out the Artist Conversation posts.
If you’re in Whistler, stop by Maury Young Arts Centre and pick up a printed copy, check out the current exhibit and local artisan shop, and chat with our box office staff about what’s coming up next.

For more events visit the calendar – new events are being added all the time!
