Thanksgiving Long Weekend Celebrations in Whistler, October 11-14, 2019

Celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving and Columbus Day in Whistler.

Autumn's spectacular colours create a vibrant backdrop for October long weekend events in Whistler. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a family retreat, fall is the perfect time to visit - rain or shine! Come up and join in the fun.

Signature events include family entertainment, and harvest themed dining - including Fairmont's fabulous turkey feasts, Turkey-To-Go, and Sunday Brunch. Right next door in Whistler's Upper Village will be host to more weekend fun including the Whistler Farmer's Market and Whistler Blackcomb's legendary Turkey Sale will be hosts to even more long weekend activities.

Here are a few Thanksgiving activities and feasts we offered in 2018:

  • SCARECROW SCRAMBLE | Ready, set, style! You have 30 minutes to style a scarecrow. We provide the materials, you provide the design inspiration. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we are donating all the clothes to charity.
  • TURKEY DERBY | An interactive virtual chase through Whistler to play on your smart phone
  • FAIRMONT 500* ZUCCHINI CAR RACES & SHOW N’SHINE | Get your race hats on for the annual Fairmont 500 zucchini car races and Show n’ Shine. Work together and prove that the zucchini just might be the fastest food around!
  • FAMILY PUMPKIN CARVING | Whatever your pumpkin style, we've got the tools to make your cravings come alive!
  • HARVEST SUNDAY BRUNCH | Celebrate the tastes and the bounty of the season with a relaxed buffet in The Wildflower
  • ALPINE AUTUMN FEST | An afternoon full of family fun; face painting, crafts, dancing, candy apple decorating and more. 
  • LITTLE PUMPKIN PLAYROOM | A special place for our youngest guests filled with games, toys, colouring books and a bouncy castle. Suitable for children ages 6 and under. Adult supervision required.
