We’ve got the inside scoop on what looks to be an amazing weekend up at Whistler for families on July 13th and 14th!
With our girls turning 1 and 3 this summer, the Whistler Children’s Festival is certainly on our radar as a family this year.
In honour of its 30th year hosting this celebration, the festival is moving from Creekside to the popular Whistler Olympic Plaza at the heart of Whistler Village, and the lineup of activities for parents and little ones seems endless. We’re not at all surprised they’re expecting over 5,000 participants this year!
The Olympic Plaza boasts stunning views of the mountains, ample lawn space, a playground, and a performance stage with the latest technology. The two-day festival will include workshops, activities, animation & roving characters, and a main stage that features musical & performing acts by award-winning entertainers, such as Ache Brasil, the Vancouver Circus School, and Major Conrad Flapps.
Families can register online for over 19 kids workshops (most of them for ages 3+ and running from $6.50 to $13.50 per workshop), including Bear Paw Print T-Shirts, Mosaic Madness, Soap Stone Carving, Dream Catchers, Backyard Birdhouses, Creative Chalk, Garden Art, Beading Bonanza, Felt Pals, Hooptastic, Big Top Hats, Lego “Building Together”, Vancouver Circus School and more.
