Looking to escape the hustle and get active in nature this BC May long weekend? Look no further than Whistler’s Great Outdoors Festival this May 18-21, where you can enjoy four full days of exciting activities with friends and family.

In addition to a free daily concert series in the Village square featuring the Philosopher Kings, Coco Jafro, The Funk Hunters and Current Swell, there are plenty activities to get you moving.
