Whistler Village Beer Festival: Cold beer, rugged mountains & a week of shenanigans

Whistler Village Beer Festival

There’s nothing quite like sipping cold beer in the mountains. Except perhaps six days of sipping cold beer with live music, lawn games, food trucks, competitions and more, all among some of the most spectacular mountains on the West Coast.

It’s all going down at the Whistler Village Beer Festival, an epic event returning this year September 11 – 17, 2023.


The Main Event 

Revelers are invited to come together for the Main Even t at Whistler Olympic Plaza on September 16. For this one, fun-filled day, more than 40 vendors will be selling a variety of beers, canned cocktails and non-alcoholic craft drinks. But it’s not a party without live music, which is why local artists such as Introduce Wolves and Red Chair will be on stage setting the scene for one of the best celebrations of the year.Not to be outdone by the drink vendors, food trucks will be on site to provide sustenance and the energy to keep the party going. Think tacos, pretzels, cheese raclette, Middle Eastern cuisine and hearty plant-based options.

Aside from all the sipping, tasting and dancing, attendees can test their skills at the lawn games dotted around the Whistler Olympic Plaza. Here they will answer the age-old question: Does beer make your corn hole aim better, or worse?

From there, the celebration continues with a Bavarian Oktoberfest party at The Longhorn Saloon on Saturday night and Sunday.


Make a Beer-Fueled Week of It

Say cheers every day of the week with the full schedule of festival events.

Sip beer in lotus pose at Sip N’ Stretch Yoga, taste a range of beers at a Brickworks Tap Takeover, discover beer as you never have before at the Firerock Craft Beer Cocktail Competition, and try not to spit out your beer with laughter at the Draught Drag Bingo night at Whistler Brewing.

And since it’s Whistler, it’s not hard to fill your cup between events with both adventures and relaxation, from hiking and biking to spa days and autumnal forest strolls. Plus, book just three or more nights and receive a $100 Dining Voucher to use during your stay.

Not to mention, the exchange rate right now is friendlier than a Canadian on a sunny day, so you’ll get more beer for your buck just by crossing the border.
