Whistler Has Heart Project & Display
To thank our community and essential workers for their strength, support and kindness to one another; the Whistler Has Heart Project has asked local artists and residents to paint one hundred wooden hearts. The painted hearts will be featured at different locations throughout the valley in February and will create a vibrant, heart-felt display of hope and joy.
- Hearts will be displayed Wednesday to Saturday at different Parks in Whistler.
- Time: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Please consider donating to The Whistler Health Care Foundation to show your support and appreciation.
Explore & Experience Whistler (formerly Family Après)
Due to COVID-19, the usual Family Après format will change this winter. It will be replaced with the new Explore and Experience Whistler program that was safely tested this past summer. It included live & local music, local art project and wellness activities. The winter animation is planned to begin after Feburary 5, 2021 through to the end of March (pending Provincial Health Orders).
There are still many ways people can get outside to explore and experience Whistler this season while being safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in Whistler.
- Check out the Winter 101 page for more winter activity ideas.
Local performers, artists and entertainers wishing to be involved in the Explore & Experience program, please complete the following applicable application:

Kids enjoyed a number of activities including mini-putt, tables games, bouncy castles, crafts and video games and more. Parents can retreat to the Conference Centre lounge for a relaxing coffee or hot cocoa while the kids play.
