Submit Your Events for the 2020 Winter Edition of Arts Scene!

We’re gearing up for the 12th edition of Arts Scene

Arts and culture is booming in Whistler and the Sea to Sky!

From January 1 – April 30, 2020 there are so many creative festivals, events, holidays, and celebrations, and we want you to be a part of it!

All of the content is generated by members of our community and the amount of content in the printed magazine and traffic to the online calendar continue to grow! More and more people are discovering the creative side of our towns, including arts programming in their festivals, buying handmade gifts, and hanging local art on their walls. Plus, it’s free to submit your events – now that’s a win!

Scroll down to see our list of questions and answers for more information about how to post, cover art, advertising opportunities, map locations, and more.

Posting is easy!
Click the orange “Post Your Event” button, and fill in your info – we look forward to seeing your events!


You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers:

  • What’s the deadline?:
    December 1 is the hard deadline to submit your events to be included in the print magazine but events can be added to our website anytime and will be included in regular outreach marketing.
  • How do I give you my events?
    Easy! Follow this link, click the orange “Post Your Event” button, and fill out the online form.
  • How much does it cost?
    It’s FREE! Arts Whistler is a non-profit charity organization, we have a mandate to help support our local creatives and to help foster the arts in Whistler.
  • Why should I participate?
    Our printed Arts Scenes are distributed around Whistler and throughout the Sea to Sky. Your events will also be promoted on our website, in our newsletters, on our social media channels, and in printed marketing collateral throughout the season. (Take a look at our current and past editions).
  • I’m not sure if you want my event? 
    We promote everything arts, culture, and heritage throughout the Sea to Sky – that’s from Bowen Island all the way up to Mt. Currie. If you have any events, workshops, gallery openings, festivals, live music, films, artist calls for entry, kids workshops… between September 1 and December 31, 2019, and we’d love to hear about them!
    Still not sure about your event? Shoot us an email, we’re happy to help.
  • What about the maps? My art is hanging in a local shop, can I add it to your listings?
    Our Culture Maps are listed in every edition of Arts Scene and include the We Heart Local Art venues and artists. Following on the years of ArtWalk success, We Heart Local Art enables businesses to directly connect with local artists to display artwork on their walls. Think of it as an online dating service…but for art! Find out more.
  • Can I purchase an ad in Arts Scene?
    We want to keep the publication chock full of events and listings and not fill it up with advertising. We have a very limited amount of ad spaces reserved for our premier sponsors and have room for a couple of purchased ads. If you’re interested in purchasing an ad, please email esuckling@artswhistler.com for details.
  • I still have questions…If you have any questions about what we do at Arts Whistler, questions about Arts Scene, or how to get involved in the local creative scene – get in touch! info@artswhistler.com
