Inaugural beer festival kicks off Saturday, September 14th

The festival will see around thirty Canadian, Pacific Northwest and international craft brewers showcase their talents. The main event will take place at Whistler Olympic Plaza. Entry tickets are coming in at $35 a piece. $35 may sound a little pricey but with that you get 5 beer tokens, a $10 food voucher, a novelty mug (we love a good novelty mug) and a ballot entry to vote for the best beer in the fest! Not a bad little package. Plus any do gooders out there looking to volunteer can sign up on the Whistler Village Beer Festival website volunteer page.

Believe Festival 2013 Preview

If you haven’t already heard about this, then you have clearly missed the billions of adverts on Facebook and Google promoting it to Whistlerites. Though we are grateful for these little ads, as without them, many peeps may not have heard about this gem of a gig. Which in all likelihood is going to tear open the summer for many.

The concert brings a host of world, reggae, hip hop, and electronic acts to Whistler Olympic Park from July 11th to 15th. Headline acts include Julian Marley and The Uprising, Liquid Stranger and Luminaries (not to be confused with The Lumineers of the ‘Hey Ho’ variety.) The full line up is huge so be sure to check it out.


Tickets for the event are $105 per day, $185 for the weekend or $263.50 for the 5 days. There are also tons of competitions for free tickets so make sure to be in to win.

If you’re strapped for cash and fancy getting in on some of the action then why not consider volunteering? Check out the volunteer sign-up page for more information. There’s even some paid employment positions available too, so be sure to check out the full website for more opportunities.
