Festivals & Events


The town plays host to many festivals throughout the year. In May, the Westport “Europe Food & Culture Festival” brings European cuisine and culture to this cosmopolitan town. Many hotels and restaurants serve delicious gourmet European food and there is entertainment European style in the evenings.

The Westport Street Festival (July/August) offers free nightly entertainment, open air concerts and plenty of fun for children during the day.
