What better way to celebrate Canada and Whistler, than with an event to light up the official first day of winter – the season at the heart of Whistler’s mountain community.

On December 21 grab a lantern, flashlight, headlamp, or glow stick and parade with us as we illuminate the night and celebrate our great Canadian winter playground! Gather with us at 5pm near the Olympic Rings.

Follow illuminated characters and giant robots as they lead a magical parade up Village Stroll and through the enchanted woods of Florence Petersen Park, culminating with live music, entertainers, hot chocolate, and winter activities by Whistler Olympic Plaza. Grab your cameras for this beautiful spectacle of light – you won’t want to miss it!

Make your own lantern with us! Arts Whistler is excited to offer a series of FREE lantern-making and lantern-decorating workshops leading up to the Winter Solstice event. And if you’ve just arrived in town, last-minute free lantern decorating will be held from 12pm-4pm on December 21 before the parade.

Arts Whistler invites everyone to shine a light on their own creativity by participating in the parade with their personally-designed lantern. Let’s come together to celebrate Canada, winter and the wonder of a parade lit by community spirit.
