Whistler’s Top 5 Summer Dining Experiences

Nestled between the farms of Pemberton and the waters of the Howe Sound, Whistler gets the best of both worlds when it comes to fresh food. However, it’s not just our amazing restaurants that benefit from fresh-farmed ingredients and west coast seafood. Throughout summer, Whistler hosts a diverse range of exciting, interesting and unique dining experiences. From simple picnics and markets, to extravagant mountain feasts, get your forks out and check out our mouth-watering pick of Whistler’s most unusual dining experiences.

1. Mountain Top Summer Feast

If you visit Whistler in the summer, it’s highly likely that you’ll venture on a hike or two. After a day of exploring pristine mountain trails, what better way to replenish your energy than a Mountain Top Summer Feast at the Roundhouse Lodge? Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from June 23rd through to September 2nd, dine amongst snowy peaks and breathtaking scenery. Dig in to a buffet-style meal of salmon, salads, breads and delicious desserts, before heading inside for live music and entertainment.

2. The Whistler Farmers Market

Held every Wednesday and Sunday from May to October, The Whistler Farmers Market is a much-loved annual tradition. Wander through over 90 vendors and market stalls and indulge in some of the finest locally sourced baked goods, sweet treats and tangy cheeses. With artisan crafts and local musicians, this is a real feast for your senses.

3. Whistler Tasting Tours

With over 100 restaurants in Whistler Village, how can you possibly pick a favourite? With Whistler Tasting Tours, you’ll be treated to food from some of the most established restaurants in the village on a 4-hour dinner tour. Meet the owners and chefs and sample some delicious dishes served with even more delicious wines. With a variety of tours to choose from, you can explore the best of the village dining scene – and remember your favourite restaurants for your next visit!

4. Slow Food Cycle Sunday

This unique foodie experience blows fast food drive-throughs out of the water. Presented by the Pemberton Valley Supermarket, the Slow Food Cycle Sunday is a signature summer event. Held on August 19th this year, set your own pace and cycle up and down over 45km of Pemberton Meadows road. On your pedal-powered trip, sample fresh produce from local farmers showcasing the sustainable farming in Pemberton Meadows and beyond.

5. Lakeside Picnic

Sometimes, simple is best. And no trip to Whistler is complete without a lakeside picnic. Stock up on picnic and BBQ essentials at the grocery store or pick up some tasty treats from one of the grab-and-go options in the village, and you’re good to go! Only a 30-minute stroll from the village, Lost Lake is one of the best al fresco dining spots. With wide-open spaces ideal for picnicking, it’s easy to spend all day lounging by the lake and admiring an unbeatable view.
