Whistler Wine Walk

09/13/2020 | by harmonywhistler | Vacation Rentals

For the third year in a row, Tourism Whistler is working hard to bring back the Whistler Wine Walk. Every Friday night last October we were able to explore Whistler’s art scene enjoying complementary hors d’oeuvres and BC wines at multiple galleries throughout the village. Immerse yourself in the Whistler art world with some amazing pieces from local, regional and international artists. We even got to participate in interactive art experiences.  

This fall participate in the Wine Walk with some slight alterations. Choose from three galleries in the main village for $15 or two galleries in the upper village for $10. Tickets are available through Tourism Whistler and cover museum admissions plus ensure social distancing with limited tickets available. Face masks will be mandatory to keep everyone safe and healthy.

The larger galleries have so much to see and do, you may want to allocate some extra time for discovering all the impressive displays.

Audain Art Museum

Whistler Village Wine Walk

Founded by Michael Audain and Yoshiko Karasawa in 2016, the Audain Art Museum is one of the most spectacular buildings in Whistler. Designed by Patkau Architects, the building is a piece of art in itself and had won multiple awards. The gallery will walk you through BC art since the 18th century embracing cultural differences, first nation masks and much more. Featured exhibits from around the globe finish off this 56,000 square foot gallery.

The wine walk is held in the foyer with a sample of what you can find throughout the museum. If you do plan on paying to go in the museum make sure you leave plenty of time to do so as there are many exhibits to check out and you can spend hours appreciating the artists and the history of BC.  

Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont - The Gallery

Upper Village Wine Walk

Focused on post-war modern Canadian landscape, Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont always has something to catch your eye.  Mountain Galleries was established in Banff nearly 30 years ago and has expanded to Jasper, and Whistler representing established and semi-established artists. The staff are well education, informative and happy to help if you are interested in any of the pieces.       

Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre

Upper Village Wine Walk

One of Whistler’s most authentic museums, focused on aboriginal culture, the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre is the most interactive museum in Whistler. With a goal to preserve and teach the culture of two nations, the Squamish Nation and the Lil’wat Nation who came together to create the place we live in now. 

Hear the traditional music, check out the cultural artifacts, listen and learn about the Salish people through story telling. Discover a new look at how important the cedar tree is as well as seas, rivers and mountains.
