Get Involved

Come and join us on June 7 and celebrate your culture with the Whistler community. We help locals share their culture through dance, songs, music, costumes, sports, exhibitions, food, activities, art and crafts. We also provide a place where our children learn to appreciate our cultures, heritage, and to be proud of their roots. We invite all locals to participate - there are many ways to get involved... 

Share a performance

Do you enjoy singing or dancing or practice a sport from your culture? Would you like to share it at the Festival? Want to perform alone or in a group?

We invite you to get in touch with us to discuss how you can participate in this year’s Whistler Multicultural Festival. 

Lead a cultural activity

At the Festival, we celebrate all cultures. Do you know an art or craft from your culture? Would you like to share information about your country and culture or language? Would you like to lead an activity? Create a presentation about your culture?

Contact us and we'll help you show the community how amazing your culture and traditions are...

Offer cultural food

We're looking for cultural food vendors to offer street food and snacks to Festival visitors. If you're already a licensed food vendor, or want to share cultural food, contact us to find out how you can share and sell food at the 2024 Festival.

Multicultural marketplace

Do you want to share your culture in our multicultural marketplace? Book a table at the 2024 Festival and we'll help you bring multicultural goods to the community.
