The Hairfamers to headline this year’s post-ride party

The Hairfarmers band

This year, we’re really amping up the post-ride festivities with a Whistler Celebration Plaza party fit for a return edition!

The Hairfamers, probably the best apres band in Canada, will be playing two sets in Whistler, either side of the big awards ceremony at 1pm.

Earlier in the day, Lower Mainland performing artist Stephen Scaccia will be causing goosebumps as he sings the National Anthem with the sun rising over the Stanley Park startline.

Refueling after the ride!

Thanks to Whistler Cooks, finishers can choose from one of the following stomach pleasers:

  • Pulled pork burger
  • Bavarian smokies
  • Falafel dish

Along with the refueling, you gotta hydrate, right? Your post-ride drink ticket is good for one delicious Red Truck craft beer . New this year, you can also choose the soft-drink alternative of Healthy Hooch.

More More More to do in Celebration Plaza

Want to game with your friends? There will be plenty to create some friendly competition with lawn games including bocce, cornhole and giant Connect 4.

Want to stretch out before it tightens up? We’ll have a lululemon stretch class at 9am followed by Recovery Zone to help work out the kinks.

Want a photo of you + friends to celebrate all that’s holy about spandex? The RBC Photo Booth will be the spot to help commemorate the ride of a lifetime.

You’ll find all this + more surprises at Celebration Plaza 2022.

After the party, there’s the afterparty . . . at Apres Apres!

We’re super stoked to let you know about the brand new official afterparty in Whistler, hosted by the awesome Apres Apres live music destination.
