Westie Fest

Oct. 13th - Oct. 15th 2017


Westie Fest

Montreal Westie Fest is Montreal’s premiere pure west coast swing WSDC event (formally known as Montreal Dance Fest). This will be our third year of hosting this fun weekend and we have the pleasure to announce that we will be moving into the beautiful Marriott Airport Hotel!

On top of having a new venue, we will be altering audition requirements for workshops as well as the format! Once again, we will be bringing together a weekend of levelled workshops with a talented teaching staff, all night long social dances, many different competition categories with a little flare of our beautiful Montreal city. Add this event to your calendar and join us for an unforgettable weekend! A bientot!

We are excited to be a part of the innovative and exciting “Swing 16” North American tour.   At each event you compete in Swing 16, you gain points (as well as prize money if you win at an event).  At the end of the season, the top 16 leaders and followers are invited to the finals, this year at Charlotte Westie Fest, to compete for thousands of dollars in prize money plus lots and lots of event passes.  Learn more at www.swing16.com

Look out for Montreal Westie Fest Event Director, Andrew Sinclair at 3:45!
