September 4-8, 2019

Just before the school year starts in earnest just as the last rays of summertime finally set just before the holiday season begins to rev up Key West welcomes women from across the globe to an annual celebration that has become one of the largest gatherings of lesbians and friends in North Americas Womenfest! Each year thousands of ladies come together over the Labor Day weekend and stay for a wide range of activities and events during four days of revelry and fun. Key West boasts restaurants that offer remarkable cuisine year round, watering holes that offer authentic, tropical libations and shops that can’t be found anywhere else. Of course the most popular activity during Womenfest usually involves a chaise lounge, a good book, sunscreen and a killer margarita. Come join us on our little island that is close to perfect but far from normal for this fabulous event that gets bigger and better every year!
