GO Fest is all about Whistler’s great outdoors, from the physical activities and adventures that get you out and about, to movies that will inspire you to keep on exploring and arts and culture events that blend time in nature with creativity.


Get ready to put our lakes and trails to good use with everything from stand up paddleboarding to sailing to yoga!


Pick up a new skill or freshen up an old one after winter with a clinic. Learn how to DJ, build a birdhouse or discover the right way to throw an axe.

Arts and Community

It’s not just about exploring the outdoors – it’s about expanding your mental horizons, too.


GO Fest’s outdoor concerts fill the Village with free, live music from Friday through to Sunday on the Village Square Main Stage. Stay tuned for this year's lineup.

Village and Valley

The pedestrian-friendly Village Stroll is the perfect place to hang out and catch a couple of events, with free street entertainment daily, markets, car rallies and more.
