The Whistler Village Beer Festival returns, featuring an extended seven-day schedule filled with beer-fuelled fun events. From cask nights and beer battles to brewing seminars, dinner pairings and multiple parties, the festival features a wide array events to raise a glass and celebrate all things beer.
The Whistler Village Beer Festival main event will see over 140 beers and ciders ready to sample in Whistler Olympic Plaza on Saturday, September 14 and Sunday, September 15. Perfectly paired with live music and food trucks, this event has easily become a festival favourite not to be missed. Along with the main event, additional festival highlights include:
