Westfest is a party like no other! Each year more than 100,000 people attend Westfest during our outdoor, three-day celebration of Canadian art and culture. As a free multidisciplinary art festival dedicated to showcasing Canadian artists and their work in an accessible and inclusive setting, this year’s Westfest will take place at Laroche Park, filling this riverside green space with a variety of artistic disciplines, from music, to visual art, spoken word, Aboriginal art forms, children’s entertainment, and so much more. Each year we host an outdoor main stage and feature some of the best acts our country has to offer. Past headliners have included Buffy Saint-Marie, Sloan, Joel Plaskett, Jane Siberry, Kathleen Edwards, and more. Established in 2004, Westfest places a special emphasis on diversity, children, and all families. Taking place annually, this year’s Westfest will be happening from June 3-5 and is proud to be Ottawa’s only festival of its size and scope that is free and open to all!
