Whistler has long been party central — so much fun that we win awards for it.

While you may think partying in Whistler is all about dancing in a nightclub in your ski boots, you could argue that the summer party scene is even better than the winter.

Hitting a village patio after a long day soaking in the sun at the beach, watching the sun disappear behind the mountains, chilling under the stars. It’s all good.

It’s even better when there’s something happening. And there’s always something happening in Whistler.

It used to be that the April World Ski and Snowboard Festival was the last hurrah before everyone tucked in for shoulder season and waited for the sun.

No more. It’s one festival and event after another this summer.

It begins with the first Great Outdoors Festival or GO Fest in May. Moving quickly on to Tough Mudder and the Canada Day celebrations to the Wanderlust yoga festival and the celebration of all things Ironman!

There’s Crankworx, which just seems to getting bigger and better every year. There’s the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. There’s the Whistler Village Beer Festival.

Well, you get the picture. Check out our events calendar at the front of FAQ and plan to party.

How can you not have a good time in Whistler this summer?
