The Annual Building Competition is Back!

The 26th Annual Building Competition with LEGO Bricks is back this month!

Like in previous years, we’ll be gathering in Florence Petersen Park to build and share some incredible creations. All LEGO bricks will be provided and contestants will get 40 minutes to build something that they think represents this year’s theme: What do you love about summer vacation?

Before visitors started to come to Whistler to ski in the winters, Alta Lake was a popular place for visitors to come in the summer to go fishing. These days there are a lot of different things you can do during the summer in Whistler, including fishing, swimming, biking, hiking, coming to the museum, or even going on trips to other places – what is your favourite part of summer?

This year’s competition will be held on Saturday, August 27 from 2 – 4 pm in Florence Petersen Park. Kids ages 3 and up are welcome! Every participant will walk away with a treat-filled goody bag and might even win one of our amazing prizes, generously donated by Whistler businesses!

Contact us to register by phone (604-932-2019), email (events @ whistlermuseum.org) or by dropping in during our open hours.
