Whistler isn’t just about skiing, biking and other adventure activities — we also have a thriving arts and culture scene! 

Whistler is home to a few stunning art venues including the Audain Art Museum, the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre and many private galleries. The art community is supported by organizations such as Arts Whistler, who support and promote local artists, artisans and events. 

The fall is a great time to check out the arts scene in Whistler. Many of these events and activities are indoors, making them the perfect escape from the rainy fall weather. Be sure to mark these fall arts and culture events in Whistler on your calendar!
