It's a sure sign that the SouthCoast is warming up when the meeting of the minds gathers together for the annual Westport Fair. The 67th annual Westport Fair is currently loading for the Summer of 2023 for a week of family fun, food, and tradition.

Last year's fair was extremely successful and the most crowded I've ever seen it. All hands were on deck and the Westport Fair Committee did a knock-out job controlling the events and schedule for the five-day event. Thousands of people from all around the SouthCoast gathered as the world looked normal once again for the first time since 2019.

The aroma of fried dough and diesel fuel surrounded the massive crowd as the tractor pulls were heard for miles around and the sweet sounds of chainsaws, farm animals, and carnival rides filled the air.
