Summer Festivals are Heating Up in Whistler
Victoria Weekend will see the GO Fest, Whistler's Great Outdoors Festival, funded by the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) through the Province of British Columbia’s Resort Municipality Initiative. The GO Fest will celebrate the unique time of year in Whistler when people can choose their own adventure, whether it be winter or summer themed pursuits.
The producers are resurrecting the legendary Great Snow Earth Water Race and are inviting everyone to "Come Up to Whistler and Play"
“I am thrilled to see the creation of GO Fest on the Victoria Day Long Weekend,” said Whistler Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden. “Whistler has a robust calendar of events and festivals and adding a festival in May will further strengthen Whistler’s year-round offerings. May is one of the best months of the year to participate in all the activities that make Whistler an amazing destination, and we are working with the festival producers to present a four-day schedule of active programming that celebrates Whistler’s great outdoors and the convergence of winter and summer recreation activities.”
The Victoria Day Long Weekend is the beginning of the summer season in Whistler, and typically, the resort sees this weekend opening its golf courses, mountain bike trails and the Whistler Bike Park.
May in Whistler is a time when you can still ski the glacier, but come down the Village and go for a bike ride or get in a round of golf. In short, paradise.
