Music Westport 2017

WAC is the proud home of MUSICwestport. The annual free outdoor music festival is our flagship and most popular event attracting locals and visitors from far and wide—and that includes the musicians too! We continue to grow the festival but strive to maintain our roots and mission to bring music to our village and all those that join us over the third weekend in August of every year.

Free outdoor two stage music festival with nine bands, kidzone, food, arts, crafts, horse and wagon rides and family fun all day. Starts at 12 pm in beautiful downtown Westport. Lots of shopping, parking and free boating spots at local harbour.

 

 

Also get in the spirit of MUSICwestport and Kick-Off the weekend with The PepTides at the Cove Inn on the friday, Aug 18! The larger-than-life nine-member band from Ottawa have a pop sound with influences from funk, electronic and disco. Known for their extravagant performances with vocal harmonies, theatrical choreography and colourful visuals, we couldn’t think of a better way to start the festival! Tickets are $50 and include the show and a buffet dinner. This event always sells out so reservations are a must!

What’s cooking in Westport

Cook together in the community kitchen on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month! Learn new skills, take home food. Childcare is available. The 1st Tuesday is at the Free Methodist Church in Westport and the 3rd Tuesday is at Country Roads in Portland. For more information check out Facebook!

Join us to try new foods and recipes, share a meal, bring extras home, have a good time, and meet new people in your community. We pick the recipes together, focusing on local, seasonal, budget-friendly ingredients. Some months we have a specific cultural theme, a guest speaker from the community, or a special event.

The group is facilitated by Registered Dietitian, Kate Earl, from Country Roads Community Health Centre. We discuss different nutrition and food safety topics each month and members share healthy eating tips with each other.

The program is FREE. There is no cost to participate. We also offer free childcare. Please ask us if you need help with travel costs. All we ask from you is that you participate in the cooking (and clean up!), come ready to have fun, and be open to trying new foods.
