Whistler Multicultural Festival

Every June, since 2013, the Welcome Centre, in partnership with the Whistler Multicultural Network, Whistler Public Library and Whistler Museum, has run the annual Whistler Multicultural Festival. This is a local event – by locals, for locals – celebrating the huge diversity we now have in Whistler.

In 2020, it’ll be a little different – we’re going online! From September 28 to October 2 we’ll be inviting the community to share the diverse cultures in Whistler. Whether you’re young, old, Canadian-born, or an immigrant or worker from elsewhere, there’ll be something for you.

Check out all the details at www.whistlermulticulturalfestival.com

Watch out for more cultural sharing and learning activities this year… We’ll be showing videos of cultural activities, customs and other traditions. Join us on Zoom and you’ll be able to talk to the activity presenters, ask questions and learn more.

Here are some of the items we’ll be sharing…

This year we’ve asked immigrants to share food from their home countries and to show you how to cook it… We’ll be posting the full recipes in our cookbook, but join Multicultural Week online to ask your questions….

We’ll be cooking….

We’re busy filming performances to bring you this year along with interviews….

Here’s what we’ll be sharing (watch this space for more as we add!)

Can you help out for a couple of hours? We’re still looking for people to host an hour online at Multicultural Week. If you’d like to try your hand at presenting – contact us at info@welcomewhistler.com!

In 2020, our thanks go to


Funders: the Province of BC and Canadian Heritage
