August Is Almost Over But There's Still Lots To Do
Slow Food Cycle Sunday and Crankworx Whistler
wrapped up over the weekend! And now it looks like
Pemberton is beginning to slow down with September just around the
corner and the start of the school year approaching. But don't
worry there's still a few activities in the corridor to keep you
busy until then!
Rather than the obvious choices of going camping, sitting in the shade, or jumping in the lake how about checking out some of these before school starts.
Outdoor Concert Series
Even though Crankworx Whistler has ended some of the best free concerts have yet to happen at Whistler's Olympic Plaza! Sarah Harmer and Whitehorse will be gracing the stage this weekend. Then the Vancouver based indie rock band, Mother Mother, will be closing out the free concert series on Saturday, September 3rd.
A Quilt Show
Over the free concerts? Well how about changing gears and checking out A Quilt Show! Come out to browse and enjoy quilts from yesterday and today this Saturday at the Pemberton Museum. With admission by donation and light refreshments offered this seems like a pretty inexpensive day checking out one of the most unappreciated forms of art.
For more information contact the museum.
Outdoor Film Screening
Big fan of the Big Sky Outdoor Movies? Then how about checking out Florence Petersen Park to celebrate the Whistler Library's 30th birthday with an outdoor screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Bring your camp chairs or picnic blankets, and come early to claim a good spot. The screening is next Tuesday, August 30th at 8pm, and it'll definitely be a good way to wrap up an eventful August.
Whistler Art Walk
As August ends the Whistler Art Work begins. From September 1st to November 30th you can grab a map and stroll through Whistler on a self-guided tour of 40+ pop-up art galleries. This three month exhibit is put on by Arts Whistler in collaboration with the local artists and businesses of Whistler. There's plenty of art to be discovered in those three months, so get out there and support your local artisans!
