Father's Day at Westfield

Bring a Picnic for Father's Day on Sunday, June 21 from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. Treat Dad to a day in the country. Bring your own picnic to enjoy the beautiful, picturesque setting at Westfield. Purchase sweet treats and cool drinks from the General Store.
Here's what is happening at Westfield...

·       The Rockton Antique and Hobby Association will be partnering with us again for Father’s Day.  A wide range of antique farm vehicles, steam engines and cars will be on display in various locations throughout the village.    A “parade of vehicles” through the village will take place, beginning at 1:30 pm.

·         There will be a display of model trains and engines at the Hardware Store. 

·        Hunter’s Corners, a musical duo of Bill Nesbitt and Brad McEwen, will be performing early English and early Canadian folk music at the church, beginning at approximately 2:15 pm.  (Following the parade of vehicles.)  If the weather is nice, they may perform outside.

·        Visitors have been encouraged to bring a picnic for Father’s Day.  Antique vehicles will be displayed in the picnic area, but tables will still be available for visitors.  Other locations on the green, at the bandstand, or under a tree, are also available to our guests.

See you there!
