Gibbons has been part of Whistler since they began building what we now know as Whistler Village back in the late 70’s. For over thirty years we have been celebrating with people from all over the world and established ourselves as a leader in the hospitality industry, currently owning five iconic venues throughout the village.
In 2012 we decided to launch our own events division to work with community organizations and larger collaborations that bring the world to Whistler. We work with some of the most innovative event organizers that come to Whistler including sports entities like Tough Mudder, GranFondo and Outerbike, tech conference such as GROW and TEDActive and lifestyle events like Wanderlust, Cornucopia, Whistler Readers & Writers Festival, and the Whistler Film Festival.
Launch of the Beer Festival
In 2013 we decided to launch our first large Gibbons event with the birth of the Whistler Village Beer Festival. We placed the festival at the end of the summer in mid-September and worked with community partners to lengthen our summer offering, attracting more guests and helping local businesses. This was a huge success and in 2014 we grew, doubling the size of our festival in only one year. In 2015 we expanded our flagship Whistler event and started the Great Okanagan Beer Festival in Kelowna BC. This beer festival has become a must-attend sold-out event throughout the years. Continuing with this momentum we created and launched the Clover Valley Beer Festival in Surrey in 2017. All three of these festivals continue to grow and develop and have become staples within their communities.
