Westfest is an integral part of summer in Ottawa. Having been blessed with playing it twice myself, once with my band, River City Junction & once with Native American Mi'kmaq artist Thomas Starwalker Clair, I can personally attest to the necessity of this festival not only for the revenue it brings into Westboro businesses, but also in how it brings artists together & contributes in a major way to the culture of & community of Westboro in general.
Westfest is fuelled by 100% Canadian content as well, so it's not just the community, business owners & festival that will suffer, but many great Canadian artist who need the exposure to help fortify their careers in music & the arts.
Losing this festival would be a huge blow to everyone involved - businesses, artists & citizens alike & we must work together to find a solution to keep Westfest going strong for many years to come. This festival is something all of Ottawa should be proud of & we cannot let it fall to the wayside. Please add your signature to show your support & when we reach enough signatures, I will present the petition to Westboro B.I.A. to help keep Westfest alive!
