The Westport Heritage Festival features a select group of quality vendors selling art, crafts, gifts and food.

“The event celebrates our success as a village and as a community. Westport is a vibrant, vigorous town,” said Thacker. The festival provides a chance to showcase the area to new people coming from Ottawa and Kingston.

“Each year we marvel at the number of people that return. It’s been said before; nobody’s a stranger very long in Westport.”

Event organizers say that the festival may join other groups and become part of a larger committee for the celebrations of Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.

And we don’t mean Maybe, Baby.
