Wom!nz Spot Lounge and Cafe


Head South to the Wom!nz Spot

The Wom!nz Spot is a dual stage performance area located on the southern part of the PrideFest grounds that hosts between 20 and 25 performance groups throughout the weekend.

The mission of the stage is to empower and showcase female-identified and non-binary artists and performance groups from a variety of art forms from within and outside of the LGBTQ community

The Wom!nz Spot provides a safe and supportive space for a variety of individuals from all economic classes, races, and gender or sexual identities and we use this platform to create positive change and opportunities within our community.

We are thrilled to carry the momentum from the 2017 Ladies Represent! DJ Battle and Dance Party where we partnered with Milwaukee’s Pathfinders Youth Services, by continuing that partnership into the 2018 PrideFest season. A portion of all gratuity revenue earned by the dual bars in the Wom!nz Spot will be donated to Pathfinders, as well as $1 of every coozie sale sold during the weekend.

The Wom!nz Spot features a wide variety of artists and genres throughout the weekend, including folk, hip-hop, spoken word, rock, and acoustic. This second-floor space* houses two stages, and 2 bars (serving wine, beer, flavored vodka, soda, and water) The Wom!nz Spot Lounge and Café space is a covered building with open windows to enjoy fresh air and lake breezes, and be part of an amazing local music experience.

*elevator available. * This space offers gender-neutral restrooms.
