Who We Are
WestFest is Glasgow’s newest cultural and community festival.
The first ever WestFest will take place from Friday 2nd – Sunday 25th June, bringing together over 100 high quality, vibrant and inclusive events in 50 venues across the West End.
WestFest was formed in 2022 in response to overwhelming public demand for accessible community and cultural events in the absence of former festivals and events. Its our view that after a very challenging few years and with all that’s going on in the world, people need a bit of levity and fun in their lives more than ever. The WestFest team feel that we are uniquely placed to deliver that and that’s what we intend to do this June!
What is WestFest
WestFest features a colourful mix of concerts, performances, recitals, galas and exhibitions; across music, theatre, comedy & visual art. You can also expect lots of special highlights such as Luke Jerram’s Gaia at McIntosh Queens Cross, the Glasgow Vintage Open Bus Tours and the return of the Kelvingrove Outdoor Ceilidh.
The jewel the WestFest’s crown will be the free programme of community events across every weekend in June such as The Big Sunday at Kelvingrove Bandstand, Vinicombe Street Gala, the Mansfield Park Street Festival & the ever popular annual Queen Margaret Drive Festival.
In addition look out for a great selection of live music, choral events, theatre, exhibitions and lots more- all free and under the colourful umbrella of WestFest.
We look forward to seeing you in June!
