What We Do
Riverwest FemFest seeks to empower our communities through the celebration of art. It is a platform for femmes, trans, GNC, women, non-binary and POC, honoring the reclamation of power for those who have been historically excluded from, or not had, creative spaces.
Founded in Milwaukee, WI in 2015, FemFest is a week-long, city-wide festival and fundraiser! The 2019 festival runs from May 26th - June 2nd. All proceeds from FemFest go toward community-based organizations within the city of Milwaukee that work to help and protect women, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and families. The 2019 festival beneficiaries will be Diverse & Resilient and the Milwaukee Women's Center.
FemFest programming includes: Music, Visual Art, Performance Art, Film & Video, Comedy, Spoken Word, Poetry, Maker's Market, and Workshops.
