Whistler village will be raucous like never before. And when we say raucous, we’re not talking May-Long-Weekend-Ed-Hardy-wearing-douches style. We’re talking 1000s of Winter enthusiasts gathered into a small village drinking, partying… and oh yea, competing in Winter sports for gold chains. Check out the hottest Whistler festivities:
Whistler will be electrifying for 14 hours every day from 9am-11pm throughout the village stroll. With six locations offering various activities and forms of entertainment, you will no doubt be entertained every step (see calendar). The Victory Ceremonies will be held every night and feature concerts of their own with acclaimed artists such as Feist, OneRepublic, and Usher, just to name a few!
Check out our party guide for the hottest Whistler party nights (Whistler events denoted W*). There are about 8 party places in Whistler, and all of them will be hopping during the Olympics. We advise to just simply walk around and find anything you can get into. More info here.
The primary objective of the WCOH is to house athletes and their families and to schmooze dignitaries. However, there are a few community gatherings which should be fun. On Feb 13, 20 and 27, there will be community breakfasts to celebrate various good things about the Olympics. On Feb 28, you can celebrate the Closing Ceremonies. For full details, click here.
