For five days, Whistler Village celebrates all things beer with various beer-centric events held throughout the village. Participants can attend beer-focused dinners, trivia events, and panels where professional brewers discuss brewing techniques. The two-day main event of the Whistler Village Beer Festival takes place on Saturday and Sunday at Whistler Olympic Plaza.
Here, attendees fill their provided mugs with more than 200 beers while strolling across lush grass and taking in picturesque sights of the mountains and nearby resort village. The event showcases more than 80 breweries split up between the two days. Its Best in Fest contest rewards the best breweries that year. Instead of medals and slow claps, winners receive covetable draft contracts, which place their brews in local restaurants and bars for one year.
Thousands of years before Europeans settled in Canada, the native cultures of Latin America and the First Nations called this land home. Aboriginal Art Exhibition: Latin America & Canada seeks to showcase and educate guests on the diverse body of artwork of the period.
And diverse it is, featuring more than 30 pieces from 16 countries. Despite their varying media and origins, they all offer a glimpse into history, specifically, the everyday lives of those in the First Nations when the Europeans first arrived.
Rustic wood cabins interconnected by wooden walkways stand amid a network of fountains, mountain streams, and small waterfalls. Dense forest and blooms of emerald ferns spread out in all directions. The train whistle and drum beats echo through the trees. At Klahowya Village in Stanley Park, natural scenery opens up to authentic representations of British Columbia's First Nations and Métis cultures through its attractions, performances, and artisan marketplace. As guests arrive, knowledgeable First Nations guides in native dress usher guests into the park, where they can start by taking in the sights or boarding the miniature covered Spirit Catcher train for storytelling journeys past forest tableaus.
Young dancers and actors in traditional dress stage cultural performances every Friday through Sunday throughout the summer, and coffee by Spirit Bear Coffee Company keeps visitors warm year-round. In the indoor marketplace, First Nations and Métis artisans proffer pieces of handmade visual art, jewellery, apparel, and other crafts. The nonprofit Aboriginal Tourism Association of British Columbia operates the park as part of its aim to create a sustainable and educational showcase of Aboriginal culture for visitors and local residents.

Q&A with the Executive Director
What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
Join more than 125 artists, tinkerers, performers, inventors, crafters, and other Makers for a weekend of crafting, learning, and exploring.
The Vancouver Mini Maker Faire brings together Makers, performers, workshop leaders, and speakers from across a wide range of disciplines for two days of exhibiting projects, building community, and sharing knowledge and inspiration. The festival showcases the amazing works of all kinds of Makers -anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together.) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.
Make sure you leave time in your schedule to take part in their hands-on activities, including T-Shirt Modification, Air Rocket Launching, and the Paint Party.
It all started when Michael Menashy, now a self-described "tea party animal," tried his first loose leaf tea. He was in China, and a factory owner brewed him a floral-scented oolong in his empty boardroom. Ever since then, he's been spreading the word about loose leaf tea's delights through Tea Sparrow.
The mail-order tea company, which he co-founded with chef Zeta Newis, works simply. Every month, each subscriber receives a curated (and taste-tested) package of four teas, which collectively yields about 35 cups. Once they've sampled all the teas, subscribers then submit reviews, such as "love the floral scent" or "very crunchy without water" to help the team further customize the next month's package.
