Whistler Children’s Festival

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

Fuelled by imagination, creativity, and giggles the Whistler Children’s Festival is Whistler’s longest-running event, now in its 35th year. Through experiential learning and immersion in the arts, the festival encourages and facilitates arts exposure and education to kids of all ages. Happening July 6-8, 2018 it’s time to put the date on the calendar and start planning your trip to Whistler, or if you live here we’ve got a whole weekend of fun for the family—book us in!

New for 2018 is the Make-It Tent where you and your little one(s) 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!
