Whistler's Moving Meadows - Planted Poetry and Art Display
Whistler artists, writers and residents have come together to create Whistler’s Moving Meadow; an artistic and heartfelt tribute to the beauty of Whistler and the resilience of our community. The display showcases local art in the form of painted evergreen trees and planted poetry tributes that spring from the ground.

Experience Whistler at Home | Music & Art
Even though live art and music are not permitted, the RMOW is supporting local artists and musicians through the Experience Whistler at Home initiative.
Local artists will paint wooden trees from their home and creating short videos to share this experience with the Whistler community. Local musicians will also provide a small piece of original music for the social media videos. It’s a perfect collaboration and provides a small work opportunity for artists and musicians that would normally be hired for our winter animation program.
Please share the videos, if you can, to show your support for Whistler’s local artists and musicians.
Explore & Experience Whistler (formerly Family Après)
The RMOW winter animation program is on hold due to the Public Health Officer restrictions on gathering that came into effect November 19, 2020 at midnight and will be kept in place until further notice.

Whistler Holiday Experience
The Whistler Holiday Experience is a family fun zone that is available to the public during the December holidays.

Celebrate New Year's Eve in Whistler Village
New Years Eve celebrations in Whistler typically includes outdoor and indoor fun for all. In previous years, the base of Whistler Mountain was lit up with a special edition of the Fire and Ice show. We look forward to the return of this spectacular display of ski and snowboard skills as Whistler's best skiers and riders jump and flip through a blazing ring of fire accompanied by fire spinners followed by fireworks display.
