Whistler’s longest-running festival is back this summer celebrating its 30th anniversary! The Whistler Children’s Festival has been a highlight for both locals and tourists year after year and this year, they have moved to a new location to accommodate the anticipated 5000+ participants!
This year, the festival has moved from Creekside and, instead, will be held at the Whistler Olympic Plaza in the heart of Whistler Village. On July 13th and 14th, while enjoying the festival, you will also be enjoying the beautiful view of the mountains as well as being just a few steps from a playground and local shops.
“As the must-do family event of the summer, the two-day festival will include workshops, activities, animation and roving characters, and a main stage that features musical and performing acts by award-winning entertainers, such as Ache Brasil, the Vancouver Circus School, and Major Conrad Flapps.”
There are over 19 workshops to choose from this year including Lego ‘Building Together’, Soap Stone Carving, Garden Art, Creative Chalk and oh so much more! Online registration for all workshops opens June 1st. Register early to secure your spot. Entrance to the festival is by donation.
