World wide, there are at least 24 places named Westport. You'll find a Westport in New Zealand, England, Ireland, mainland Canada...all parts the United States...and White Bay, Newfoundland. Population 227.
It's one of the smallest in the world, but Newfoundland's Westport is a little outport that dares to dream big. This past summer, it hosted a world wide convention of Westports. A convention that brought people to Newfoundland from Westports all over the continent.
