We love traveling to Whistler. For us it’s a great place to get away when we are looking to have a mini family vacation. We have gone to Whistler at all times of the year, and there is always so much to do. We love vacationing here. With a toddler, the best part is it’s only a two hour drive to get there. Totally do-able. Now, Whistler may be known for it’s snow it is also a wonderful place to visit during the sunny months. This summer there is the Whistler Children’s Festival.
The Whistler Children’s Festival is having its 32nd annual festival happening July 10-12 in the Whistler Olympic Plaza. There is everything from workshops, live performances, free activities, and characters. Children will have the opportunity to get to make arts and crafts, and work on their dance skills. Registration for the paid workshops is open, you can check out what is available here. I’m intrigued by the bear paw print shirts and the patio lanterns workshop.
There are also several performers who will be there including, be sure to check the schedule on the site to see who is performing on what dates, and at what times. You could see:
- Bobs and Lolo
- Sand Northrup – One Woman Circus
- Jacky Enssombe – The African Village
- Norman Foote and Friends
The Whistler Children’s Festival starts with a dance party to kick things off on Friday from 5pm-8pm. It then runs from 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults (19+), $5 for children, and children 2 years old and under are free. If you are wanting to attend this with your family, be sure to go to the Whistler Children’s Festival site and purchase your tickets. If you register for a workshop, entrance into the event is included!
