ABOUT THE WHISTLER CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL
Celebrating its 32nd anniversary this year, the Whistler Children’s Festival is Whistler’s longest-running community festival and the only child-focused summer festival in the region. The Festival has grown with Whistler’s community to provide a dynamic, unique cultural experience for both residents and visiting families. The ultimate goal of the Festival is to foster youth engagement through experiential learning, and this goal is accomplished each year through an offering of live performances, free activities, and a diverse offering of hands-on creative workshops.
This year, the main stage at Whistler Olympic Plaza will feature performance groups, on-site roving performers, more than ninety paid workshops led by local professionals, and more than fifteen free activities. The Festival will also feature an Emerging Artist Stage, showcasing over 20 young talents from the Sea to Sky Corridor. WAC has a long-standing mission to support emerging artists through a variety of annual programs, events, and festivals, and the Whistler Children’s Festival has been an incubator of emerging performers and artists who have gone on to continue their creative work in many other areas.
Love Child is a proud sponsor of the Whistler Children’s Festival.
I was compensated for this post and will be attending the festival with my family. I hope to see you there!
