We are so fortunate to live within driving distance to one of the most beautiful places in the world, Whistler, BC. Growing up, Whistler was a second home to me as our family was a big ski family. We spent most weekends up at Whistler during the winter. As we got older, we started recognizing how incredible Whistler is in the summer as well. Now, I honestly can’t pick whether the winter or the summer season at Whistler is my favourite. There is so much to do in the winter, but the summer brings its own fun with all the bike trails, days at Lost Lake, water sports and all the activities going on at the base of the mountains.
One of the greatest family events of the summer is the annual Whistler Children’s Festival. Whether you are driving up for a day, or spending a few nights up at Whistler, you and your kidlets are going to want to make sure to attend this great event. There are over a dozen workshops for your kids to partake in including African Stories, Bear Paw Print T-Shirts, Theatre Games, and so many more!
When: July 10-12, 2015
Where: The Great Lawn at Whistler Olympic Plaza
Festival entrance fee: $10 kids | $5 adults (19+) | Free 2 & under
Tickets for general festival entry are only available for purchase on-site at the Whistler Olympic Plaza, on the weekend of the festival. Included in your festival entrance fee is single-day entrance to the festival, and access to all free entertainment and on-site activities. If you purchase a workshop there is no need for the workshop participant to also purchase a ticket to the festival on that day.
Join us for a weekend of creativity with dozens of workshops, live musical performances, and a myriad of activities designed to spark the imagination. We’ll have activities for children of all ages- from the Toddler Town tent, to the Circus Skills workshops, to the popular Soap Stone Carvings. Transform yourself with face painting, balloon hats and creatures – ideal for both parents and children. Stay tuned for more event details to come!
We attended the event 2 years ago and one of Portia’s favourite parts of the event was the line up of performers over the weekend. It’s really constant entertainment!
