Whistler Children's Festival announces lineup

Annual event set to mark 36th year from July 5 to 7



The Whistler Children’s Festival has unveiled its lineup.

Set to run for the 36th year from July 5 – 7, this year’s performers include a mix of new faces and old favourites.

On Friday, the festivities kick off with a free all-ages pyjama dance party, featuring local family favourite Ira Pettle (who was recently named the Whistler Excellence Award’s Champion of Arts and Culture). Ventriloquist Kellie Haines and singer Smilin’ Rylan will also be on hand.

Then, on Sunday, catch Juno Award-winning kids performers Bobs and LoLo wrapping up the fun.

In between, you can also find The Roaming Diva, a circus-styled songstress, around the grounds at Whistler Olympic Plaza; Will’s Jams, from CBC Kids Television; Angela Brown, The Ta Daa Lady & Nylon Zoo; and the Musical Playground, an interactive installation of experimental instruments.
