Whistler Childrens Festival
The 2016 Whistler Children’s Festival has ended - thank you to everyone who made it a success. Check back for more information on 2017 events.
This long-running July event brings hands-on art workshops, crafts, theatre, multi-media, dance, music and magical performances to Whistler Olympic Plaza. It’s the perfect excuse to visit family-friendly Whistler for a weekend or more.
The festival takes over Whistler Olympic Plaza all weekend long. The entrance fee gives access to free activities such as face painting, balloon hats, origami and a covered free-play area for kids under 2 years. There will be performers on stage all day and roving characters to surprise and delight.
$15 for children 3–15 years. Free for kids 2 & under, parents and guardians.
A large number of paid creative workshops are also available with projects including Soapstone Carving, Build-a-Bot, Backyard Birdhouses, Dreamcatchers, Circus Trapeze & Hoop and Up–up and Awake Yoga. Workshop fees start at $15. Register online at the festival website early, as these popular workshops fill up fast!
Registration for 2016 workshops is now open! Visit the Whistler Children’s Festival website to view workshop details and purchase festival tickets.
