GO Fest - Whistler’s Great Outdoors Festival


The festival has finished for 2018. Please check back for updates on future events.

May is the month when summer and winter meet, where sliding on snow, golfing, bike riding and water sports can all be enjoyed on a single day. GO Fest falls on the Victoria Day Long Weekend, with four days of events to welcome warmer months and get everyone out and enjoying Whistler’s great outdoors.

2018 GO Fest Schedule

GO Fest is all about Whistler’s great outdoors, from the physical activities and adventures that get you out and about, to movies that will inspire you to keep on exploring and arts and culture events that blend time in nature with creativity. Check out the selection of events happening at the 2018 Festival below:


We’re getting ready to put our lakes and trails to good use with everything from sailing to cycling to ping pong!


Pick up a new skill or freshen up an old one after winter with a clinic. Learn how to DJ, improve your photography skills or discover the right way to throw an axe.

Arts and Culture

It’s not just about exploring the outdoors – it’s about expanding your mental horizons, too.


GO Fest’s outdoor concerts will fill Village Square with free live music including The Philosopher Kings, Carmanah, Coco Jafro and The Funk Hunters.
