Winter RMOW festivals, events & animation

Explore & Experience Whistler 

Look for lighting displays, educational animation, and beautiful photo ops within Whistler Village, starting in December to the end of March.

Whistler Village Festive lighting

Stroll through Whistler Village to view the festive lighting. Between December and March there are up to 350,000 LED bulbs in total with approximately 6,500 strands of lights. The lights celebrate the short days of winter under Whistler’s dramatic dark skies. 

And if you are looking for something extra special, seek out the giant woodland creatures who made Rebagliati Park their home! And you find more of our forest friends nestled inside Florence Petersen Park until the end of March.
