"Ladyfest New Orleans is a non-profit, music, spoken word and arts festival organized by local women of all identities. Its mission is to showcase, celebrate and encourage the music, poetry, art and activism of the women of New Orleans, and to benefit local organizations that support women. The first Ladyfest took place on August 2000 in Olympia, Washington. It followed the Olympian tradition of festivals, where people gathered together to share ideas, talent and abilities. It featured performances by bands, spoken word artists, visual artists and more. True to its word, it was a women-run event, but all were welcome to attend Though Ladyfest was never again held in Olympia, its organizers and supporters encouraged women to start Ladyfests everywhere, and that's exactly what they did!"
