1:00 - 6:00 pm, taking place in and around the Hillcrest Flag Pole / Pride Plaza.

She Fest centers LGBTQ+ women and non-binary folks. 

********************************

She Fest is a woman-centered event that celebrates and supports the talents and contributions of women while fostering meaningful connections within the LGBTQ+ and broader San Diego community. In previous years, we have put on a program that combines workshops, music, food, games, and booths for local vendors, community groups, and organizations that support our mission.

WHO WE ARE: 

We are a volunteer committee of LGBTQ+ women and non-binary folks centering the diverse experiences of LGBTQ+ women and people who feel at home with “she.” Together, we foster community connections for San Diego’s LGBTQ+ women and intentional allies; we combat homophobia, transphobia, and the patriarchy; and, we highlight and celebrate the spectrum of “she.” We are explicitly inclusive and affirming of trans women and non-binary folks.
