September in Whistler is a good time. Summer bumps into fall, bringing plenty of opportunities to enjoy warm weather activities in addition to the first glimpses of sweater weather and autumn colours.
Here’s what to do in September in Whistler:
Sept 1, Sept 8
The Outdoor Concert Series continues with free performances in the Olympic Plaza. Catch Lights on September 1st and Nearly Neil and The Solitary Band on September 8th.
Bring snacks and cuddle up under a blanket as you watch Almost Famous on a giant outdoor screen in Creekside Village, at the base of Whistler Mountain.
The 122km cycling race along the beautiful Sea to Sky corridor from Vancouver to Whistler returns for another year. Registration ends September 4th.
The Whistler Village Beer Festival is back for its sixth year, and they’ve added a sixth day of programming – because five days of beer wasn’t enough. The two-day main event happens on Saturday and Sunday (15/16) in the Olympic Plaza.
Until Sept 17
The Audain Art Museum is currently featuring bold, brash, pop-culture inspired works from iconic artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. This exciting exhibit runs until September 17th so be sure to visit before then.
September is a perfect time for alpine hiking. Summer sunshine has melted most or all of the snow and colder conditions haven’t yet swooped in, making September ideal for knocking off whatever hikes you’ve got on your list.
Whistler’s newest nighttime attraction is getting rave reviews. The coordinated light and music show creates a surreal atmosphere for an after-hours stroll through the forest.
We hate to be the bearer of bad news but September means lake weather is on its way out. If it’s a hot, sunny day, you’ll probably want to take advantage.
We’ve been blessed with another great eatery in our neighbourhood. Just across the road from the Summit Lodge, the Corner Deli serves an expertly crafted array of deluxe deli sandwiches. An instant favourite among locals.
Every Sunday and Wednesday
