The Whistler Children's Festival is back for it’s 40th year! Whistler’s longest running festival engages children and families in arts and culture with two weekends filled to the brim with adventure. Free your imagination and enjoy dance parties, face painting, roving street entertainment, science shows, circus acts and internationally-acclaimed children's performers.

2023 Festival Schedule

The Whistler Children's Festival offers two weekends of adventures along the Cultural Connector. The Maury Young Arts Centre also hosts back-to-back performances and workshops to unlock your creativity with the likes of Fred Penner and Kelly Haines – just two of the great acts they’ve got lined up.

There are also many free activities to enjoy every day of the festival – from arts and crafts to scavenger hunts and entertainment along the Village Stroll. Get your walking (or dancing) shoes on and prepare for a jam-packed family adventure all weekend long on two separate weekends!
