Fall For Arts Returns to Whistler!
It's officially the start of Whistler's 2nd season of Fall For Arts! This 3 month long celebration of arts and culture includes tons of events and activities for locals and visitors to enjoy. This year, Whistler's Fall For Arts is even bigger with more things happening throughout the sea to Sky Corridor. Take part in gallery viewings, art markets, lecture series, heritage walks, live music, movie screenings, festivals, and so much more.
Starting September 2017 and going until the end of November, get ready for 3 months jam-packed with arts and culture events. Fall offers the perfect blend of less traffic in Whistler and the opening of many different cultural events. Wind down after a long hot summer of outdoor activities by indulging in the deep roots of Whistler's art and culture scene. Check out just a few of the things you can do in Whistler during Fall For Arts below.
Arts Whistler Culture Maps
One of the best parts about Fall For Arts is that it doesn't even require an event for you to take part. Arts Whistler has developed Whistler Culture Maps that allow you to choose your own route as you check out cultural landmarks, public art, galleries, and more along your journey. Explore in the Village or venture slightly off the beaten path and other points of interest all throughout Whistler. Find yourself a hard copy of the map at the Maury Young Arts Centre or use them online at Arts Whistler Culture Maps.
Whistler Village Beer Festival
From September 13 - 17, you have a chance to sample over 120 beers from 50+ breweries at the Whistler Village Beer Festival. This will be WVBF's 5th birthday, and they're offering a great deal on their Main Event on Saturday and Sunday. To learn more you can head over to our previous blog post - Celebrate the 5th Annual Whistler Village Beer Festival.
