WELCOME

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you, from July 9 to 14, 2019 to the 35th edition of the Wendover Western Festival, located on one of the nicest site in Wendover, for a time of festivities where some great well-known artists will perform. We would like to thank the Township, the Parish, and all of our generous sponsors and partners who help us make this event a big success, that keeps growing year after year. We would like to mention the support of the Department of Canadian Heritage through the 'Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program'. We would also like to thank all of our volunteers who, for some have been with us for many years, help make this event a great success.

We invite everyone to join us for a wonderful week filled with pleasure, joy and friendship. We hope that our western festival, with people coming from everywhere, is a chance to make new friends and meet old friends, will also be a memorable event that will make you want to come back year after year to celebrate with us in Wendover.

We have put together a nice program which we hope will please everyone. It's always a pleasure to welcome you all to our festival and in Wendover! Come celebrate with us!
