About the Festival

Welcome to Femme Folks Fest 2021!  A festival dedicated to and in celebration of Women identified or presenting with Productions, Panels, Pop-Ups, Professional Development and more. Celebrated in March worldwide, International Women’s month is a focal point for the championing of women’s rights and gender equality. At present there is no consistent large-scale programming dedicated to Women in Waterloo Region to coincide with International Women’s Month.

Until now.

Femme Folks Fest (FFF) creates space for community to come together and watch performances, engage in conversation, and celebrate the incredible work of femme-identifying artists. The heart of Femme Folks Fest 2021 will be a virtual space built in Gather, and all FFF programming will take place virtually using both Gather and Zoom. 

A Femme Folks Fest Pass is available for a Pay-What-You-Will DonationThe FFF Pass gets you access to events and activities including play readings, artist talks, studio tours with our Artists in Residence, after-parties, and plenty of surprises. Please note that free tickets to The Vintage Project need to be reserved separately here.
