This year will be the 8th consecutive year of the Music Westport and Arts Market. There’s so much to see and do you need the weekend to take it all in. The weekend starts off at The Cove in Westport on Friday, August 15th, with the Music Westport Kick Off Party, featuring H’Sao from Montreal, an African Acapella/Dance Group.
On Saturday, August 16th, enjoy our local arts and music scene by taking in an outdoor concert or shopping in the arts market. In the morning watch our 3rd Annual Voice of The Rideau, The Cove’s local amateur vocal competition where you can cast your vote for this year’s winner.
This music festival features two outdoor stages: behind The Cove and beside Artemisia where you can listen to great Canadian bands play everything from rock’n roll to today’s contemporary country music. All the outdoor events are free, so tell your neighbours and bring your kids to spend the weekend with us in Westport.
To audition for the Voice of the Rideau download and complete the form, then come with your talent on July 19th to the North Crosby Hall from 10am-4pm and show the Westport Arts Council what you’re made of. This competition is open to all ages, no voice is too small to compete.
