Madison FemFest 2020 is almost here!


With all the success of Riverwest FemFest year after year, we've decided to branch out of Milwaukee with a mini two-day fest in Madison, Wisconsin. The festival is at Bos Meadery on January 17th and 18th, 2020. The festival includes two days of music and art performances from local and regional acts. In addition, we are hosting two workshops at Communication on Saturday prior to the evening events.

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.

All proceeds from FemFest go toward community-based organizations within the city of Madison that work to help and protect women, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and families. The 2020 festival beneficiary will be Willma's Fund, a project of OutReach LGBT Community Center.
