The Festival is a four-day musical and cultural extravaganza that incorporates all facets of women's lives. It's a jam-packed long weekend where choices for things to do range from workshops, concerts, comedy, theatre presentations, a marketplace, newly released films and videos, a live auction, spirituality series and much, much more!
Most Festival attendees are women, although men can and do attend. Attendees come from all walks of life and cultures, cutting across ethnic, racial, sexual, age, and ability boundaries. Likewise, festival programming reflects many points of view; a diversity of ideas and topics are explored and discussed in a safe environment. Festival is an environment in which philosophies and politics are open for discussion, not mandated or judged.
Services available include a wide range of accessibility services with almost all concerts interpreted for the deaf.
National Women's Music Festival is produced by Women In the Arts, Inc. a 501-c-3 nonprofit corporation. The 2011 festival will be the 36th festival which was first produced in 1974 in Champaign, Illinois.
