Now in its 33rd year, Westport Arts Festival has long since established itself on the West coast calendar as an exciting and diverse event. The festival is a locally-run event and gives an exciting insight into the lively community in Westport with a feast of theatre, dance, recital and music. There are children’s events, exhibitions and workshops.
An intimate place set in a natural amphitheatre where the action is never too far from view – it’s everything a country racecourse should be.
