Web exclusive: Something new for Westfest 2019

A country-themed sweet sixteen party is what Elaina Martin has planned for the 2019 edition of Kitchissippi’s multidisciplinary arts festival with multiple Juno award-winning musician Charlie Major strumming as this year’s marquee headliner. Oh, and if you've ever wanted to have the VIP experience at Westfest, now's your chance. Get all the details in our story.

Remembering a friend and neighbour, Rolph Almstedt

Many KT readers counted Rolph as a friend. And even if you never spoke, you've seen him around. Tara Tosh Kennedy spoke to some of his friends and family and shared this story with us

A new business has rolled into the neighbourhood

Mel Tayler discovered she had a passion for the world of roller skating, and she's brought it with her to Westboro. (Some may know Mel better by her roller derby pseudonym, Dawn Cherry.)

Speaking of new businesses... 

We are welcoming some new businesses to our community and saying goodbye to a few favourites. See what's new right here. (Surprise! The list includes a new coffee shop for Westboro, but there's a twist...)

The heritage home was saved by a developer

Dave Allston did some digging for his latest Early Days column and uncovered some new information about one of Kitchissippi's oldest buildings. Sadly, some of its stories will always remain a mystery. 

Do you know our latest Human of Kitchissippi?

Residents of Mechanicsville will DEFINITELY recognize our latest HOK. He's lived in the area since horses grazed the pastures and they dragged ice up from the river. And guess what he was doing when we met up with him?
