MUSICwestport 2023

The 15th annual MUSICwestport festival will happen on Saturday August 19th, 2023. Two outdoor stages (one at Lockwood Park, the other at The Cove Inn) will host 8 musical acts starting at noon. There will be vendors, a magician, balloonist, face painting and food throughout the day. We will have wandering minstrels (The Goat Steppers) touring the village providing entertainment from 1-5pm. There will also be a kid’s show featuring Gerry Mitchell and an activity zone starting at 11am at Lockwood Park.

Join us in Westport the evening before for the kick off party, live from The Cove Inn. Friday August 18th will be a dinner and show event from 7-11pm for $80+HST featuring The Human Rights (including members of Big Sugar). Proceeds from each ticket will go to help supporting the Westport Arts Council so we can keep organizing amazing events like MUSICwestport!
