Whistler Seasons

August is always a busy month in Whistler because of the massive festivals, August 6th, 2018 BC day, plus the Whistler presents concert series, Farmer’s markets, glacier riding, sightseeing, hiking, mountain biking and so much more. 

LET ME EXPLORE WHISTLER LODGING OPTIONS


WANDERLUST FESTIVAL

The month begins with the Wanderlust Festival, and everyone will watch scarily healthy types carrying yoga mats around and making the rest of us feel slightly guilty. The festival takes place 3-6 August and includes live music, various speakers, artists, and teachers. The end of the festival is immediately followed by the first BC day holiday being celebrated. This means not only is the town packed full of Yoga types but there are many families around enjoying the long holiday weekend.


CRANKWORX

But there is no time for taking it easy as one of the biggest and best festivals Whistler has to offer is just about to begin. It is quite the turn around as the yoga mats disappear and the mountain bike crowd descends in force. Crankworxs once again a full 10-day festival with some of the best mountain bike riders from around the world in town to compete. Crowds are wowed by the antics in the bike park and also at the base of the mountain. There is also live music as well as video competitions taking place at the Whistler Olympic Plaza.  


WHISTLER LAKES ARE AMAZING

August & July are typically the hottest months with daily highs of 27°C (80°F) and with all the Crankworx dirt spreading around, it is nice to tuck away at one of the Whistler lakes. We have 5 of them and you can enjoy your time in many ways from playing cards, lawn games, cooking some tasty BBQ to just resting at one of the floating decks in the middle of the lake.


THE FREE OUTDOOR CONCERTS CONTINUE 

The Outdoor Summer Concert Series started in May in Whistler and August will present many more all the way through September. We often get caught up in the outdoor-activity mode in this playground, and hardly take the time to sit and relax. But with these classical & chilled out beats, it is much easier to just sit on a picnic blanket and listen to some quality sounds right at the Olympic rings!

SLOWLY ROLLING INTO SEPTEMBER 

As August edges into September, the 4th annual North Face Valley To Peak Race hits the village on Sep 1st and the RBC Granfondo one week later on Sep 8th. And guess what? The Whistler Beer Festival will traditionally happen as well, this time on Sep 11th, 2018.
