Whistler Children’s Festival

Whistler Children’s Festival: July 6 – 8, 2018

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.

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.
