WYWL has 2 major fundraisers each year: CraftWestport and the Minute Man Race. Profits from fundraisers are distributed to charities in lower Fairfield county through our grants process.


2017 is CraftWestport’s 42nd year! It is a fine arts and crafts show held at Staples High School in Westport on a Saturday and Sunday each November. Over 175 artists come from all over to display and sell their wares. There is jewelry, furniture, clothing, garden art and much more. Start your holiday shopping with us! For more details, visit the CraftWestport page.

Minute Man Race

The Minute Man Race is a 5K and 10K timed Race on a certified course that begins and ends at Compo Beach in Westport. There is also a kid’s fun run held on the baseball field at the beach. 2018 will be our 40th annual race! The Minute Man Race is held in late April or Early May. It’s fun for the whole family and a great way to welcome Spring. For more information, visit the Minute Man Race website.
