Saturday June 14, 2014 marks the 8th edition of the Westport Heritage Festival, a family-friendly festival where you can spend the day relaxing in the village. Our 700 residents love opening the town up to visitors and their families. Come out and enjoy the festival, kids can roam through the petting zoo and have their faces painted, you can take home a freshly made rhubarb strawberry pie.
Each June the picturesque village of Westport celebrates its small town charm and heritage with an all-day street festival where dozens of vendors sell art, crafts, unique one-of-a-kind gifts and delicious homemade food, it provides a chance to showcase the village charms to new people coming from Ottawa and Kingston.
Thacker recently said, “The event celebrates our success as a village and as a community. Westport is not immune to the ups and downs of the economy and what have you, but we persevere and are rewarded with a vibrant, vigorous village. Each year we marvel at the number of people that return. It’s been said before; nobody’s a stranger very long in Westport”.
