Every Wednesday evening, Saturday and Sunday, the Whistler Farmer’s Market takes place in Upper Village. In addition to artisan goods, tasty food, and live music, there is a kids zone filled with fun activities. 

The Audain Art Museum  Museum

For summer, the Audain Art Museum launched POP, the latest exhibition of modern art. It features the work of Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol among others. 

Golf

Whistler has four award-winning golf courses all within in proximity to one another. These courses are some of the most beautiful in the world and July is the perfect time to experience them in all their beauty.

Sundays at the Point

From July 1st to September 2nd, every Sunday at the Heritage Lodge and Cypress Point Cafe, there is live music on the back porch, an art show inside, Bocce, and swimming from the dock.

Top Of The World Biking

While a date has not been set for the Top Of The World Bike Trail to open, it is well known that the trail generally opens sometime in July, depending on snowmelt. This trail takes you through the Peak zone and drops you back into the Garbonzo zone, making for one long and amazing ride. 

Red Bull 400

A pure uphill spring might not sound like fun but if calf burn is not up your alley, it can be incredible to watch! Participants are required to run 400 m at a height gain close to 140 m, OUCH!

Subaru IRONMAN Canada

Voted best overall swim, run, and experience, Iron Man Whistler is loved by both participants and spectators alike.

Whistler is home to one of the longest-running Iron Man Triathlons. The challenging course means that the participants could use all the support that they can get. Come to see these athletes in action and be part of the contagious atmosphere.
