The Whistler Outdoor Concert Series is back again this year, sporting another incredible roster of acts.

And the best part? All of these acts can be enjoyed for free!

This summer, throughout July, August and September, those lucky enough to be in Whistler will be treated to a huge range of talented musicians and artists. Currently confirmed acts include the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Jose Gonzalez!

The concerts always have a great atmosphere and are attended by almost everyone in the community, with a huge range of age groups. Families attending can also take advantage of the playground next to the stage if children get a little restless!

Where is it?

The Concert Series takes place at the Whistler Olympic Plaza. The Plaza fits around 5000 people and you can stand or sit on the Village Green next to the Olympic rings and take in the show.

The stage is set to the impressive backdrop of both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and is a fantastic setting to watch the acts. There are also big screens either side of the stage if you want to watch it from a distance.

When are the shows?

The shows are taking place throughout July, August and September and include some really big names!
