With summer on the doorstep, the 14th annual Westfest takes place this weekend from June 2–4 at Laroche Park.
As founder Elaina Martin put’s it, Westfest is “the people’s festival.” With Westfest in it’s 14th year, Apt613 talks to Martin about what Westfest is all about, its efforts towards reconciliation, and making Westfest Ottawa’s most accessible and diverse festival.
Westfest, now in its 13th year, was a lively mixture of music, art, food, and fun. Our contributor Terry Steeves was on the scene to capture these photographs. Check out our interview with founder Elaina Martin on the festival’s history and future.
