Celebrating 35 years of FUN!

Join us at the Whistler Children’s Festival | July 6-8, 2018 | Tickets on sale now

Get ready for a weekend of action-packed fun and creativity for the whole family. 

The weekend kicks off with a free, all-ages kick-off party on Friday night, followed by two full days of live performances, interactive activities, and lots of hands-on creative workshops for kids and families to enjoy.

New for 2018 is the Make-It Tent where you and your little ones can get crafty, Science World is throwing an interactive surprise science show, Jacky Essombe brings the beats and rhythm of Central Africa to the mountains, and it gets creatively constructive with super-cool KEVA planks. Don’t worry though, there’s still the dance parties, live music, and bubble fun you, we mean your kids, love.

It’s time to unplug and get creative!

What is the Whistler Children’s Festival?

The Whistler Children’s Festival is Arts Whistler’s longest-running program and a signature annual event, celebrating its 35th birthday in 2018. Through experiential learning and immersion in the arts, the Whistler Children’s Festival encourages and facilitates arts exposure and education to kids of all ages. Each summer, the heart of Whistler Village is transformed as tents, balloons, stages, and circus acts populate Whistler Olympic Plaza for the annual Whistler Children’s Festival. Families are encouraged to participate in this weekend of creativity with tons of workshops, live musical performances, and free activities designed to spark the imagination.

How can I get involved?
