Gone Postal: Day #1 of The 29th Whistler Children’s Art Festival
Day one of the 29th Whistler Children’s Art Festival goes down in the books as one of our most memorable family events we’ve attended since moving to Whistler just over 6-months ago. With Nana & Papa in town, our day began with a short walk into Creekside for the Rotary Pancake Breakfast which – believe it or not – we could smell from our place in Bayshores, no kidding! By the time we arrived I was famished and all too happy to eat the bacon the rest of my family edged to the side of their plate.
From there, we did a lap of the Community Garage Sale where a local pro skier was unloading his gear closet. Unfortunately, it was far too hot to even think about ski-gear and so we passed by the great deals and headed to the main attraction – the Children’s Art Festival.
The Children’s Art Festival is the longest running community event in Whistler and boasts an amazing line-up of entertainers, workshops, and art education & inspiration for children (and adults). This is a must-do family event if you have young children. In fact, there is so much to do and take in you won’t be able to do it all.
Thankfully, the festival runs all day tomorrow as well with the Global BC main stage performances scheduled to begin at 10am. Make sure you bring sunblock, hats, and a plan to check out some of the artsy workshops available for your kids. We had a great day and I tip my hat to the Whistler Arts Council for putting together an outstanding event!
If you’re in Whistler this weekend or near enough to get here for tomorrow, do the festival. You won’t be disappointed.
