Paired with some of the best catering Whistler has to offer and served among the largest collection of Squamish and Líl’wat native art and exhibits, the Squamish Líl’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler provides a unique venue for corporate galas, dramatic incentives and memorable weddings. Beyond the culinary experiences, atmosphere and incredible architectural design, it is the staff and exhibits at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre that create a perfectly unique evening. Engaging conversations with the Ambassadors, wandering through the exhibits, watching the film, and learning the legends and folklore of Whistler’s First Nations people will create lasting memories for your guests.
Facilities and capacity
Located on the main level, the Great Hall can accommodate up to 300 guests for a reception or 150 for a sit-down dinner. Decorating the Great Hall are spectacular weavings, canoes, carvings and windows that look north over Lost Lake. The Istken Hall is a dynamic, round room with a perimeter of windows looking into Lost Lake woods. The ground level, including the Istken Hall and Thunderbird café area, is also available for daytime or evening rentals. This 7,000-square-foot deck floats into the forest and allows guests a view of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. Each summer, 2,500 square feet of patio are covered in retractable awnings, creating an outdoor weather resistant event space.
The Centre hosts a variety of weddings each year, from ceremonies to dinners and receptions. All types of weddings are welcome at the Cultural Centre, and highly customizable packages allow you to create the special day that you are looking for. To make this day special, the Cultural Centre does require that couples have a wedding planner on the day of the event to assist with any details leading up to the big day.
The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre is located in Whistler, British Columbia, on Blackcomb Way (4584) and Lorimer Road right across from the Fairmont Chateau Whistler in the Upper Village.

After looking at over 8 different venues in Whistler for our wedding, we could not have been happier with our choice of the SLCC! The staff that we worked with were extremely responsive, flexible to our needs, and very professional. The staff present during the day of our wedding could not have been more friendly, polite, and helpful. We highly recommend this unique venue to any other couples considering a wedding in Whistler, BC.
