Minto Communities USA, developer of the award-winning Westlake master-planned community, will host WestlakeFest, a free community-wide event taking place on Saturday, June 1, from noon to 3 p.m. at 16610 Town Center Parkway North in Westlake.

The event marks the grand opening of Minto’s new Courtyard Collection townhome models at the Terraces, along with a live concert, games, giveaways and an array of other family-oriented activities.

Headlining the event is Grammy winner Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers, fresh off a recent performance with the Rolling Stones at the NOLA Jazz Fest. The festivities include a DJ, food trucks, face painting, a bounce house, a BMX demonstration and more.

“We’re thrilled to host a fun-filled day packed with activities for the whole family. This event celebrates the vibrant community spirit that sets Westlake apart,” said Steve Svopa, southeast division president of Minto Communities USA. “As the fastest-growing city in Florida, Westlake offers an unparalleled lifestyle guests can experience firsthand at the event.”

Attendees will have an opportunity to tour all 11 furnished model homes in Westlake, including four brand-new townhome models in the Terraces. Priced from the mid-$300s, these Courtyard Collection townhomes offer three spacious floorplans: Rose, Ivy and Coral. With two architectural styles to choose from, coastal contemporary and urban transitional, each three-bedroom and four-bedroom floorplan features a two-car garage, front-entry covered lanai, expansive island kitchen, walk-in master closet and double sink master vanity.

Also available for touring are six single-family model homes and the luxurious estate home model.

Westlake is approved for 4,500 homes and more than two million square feet of commercial space. The Westlake Sales Center is located at 16610 Town Center Parkway North, off Seminole Pratt Whitney Road between Southern Blvd. and Northlake Blvd.
