Our 5th Annual Fest offers 25+ events over 9 days, all live and in-person at 8 venues throughout Waterloo Region. For 2024 we concentrate once more on artist creation, collaboration and things that spark delight. Come share in our artists’ offerings as we make our way out of Winter’s dark and into the new Spring.

New and Featured for 2024 is the Premiere of an original Eco-dance performance, IT FALLS WITH THE RAIN at Centre In The Square’s Studio Theatre.  This very special workshop presentation opens Femme Folks Fest’24, running for three shows over the first weekend with Artist Talkback after each performance.

That’s not all – presentations in theatre, comedy, dance and our annual Projection Parade of Femme Creation featuring National and Regional visual artists. This very special event occurs in Uptown Waterloo and Hespeler Village. Last years’ parade was witnessed by more than 21,000.

Keep an eye on our socials as we announce our Pop-Up events. We have more than a dozen planned and they are FREE (registration required for some) and POP-UP daily.
