Wom!nz Spot Lounge and Cafe

WOMINZ

The Wom!nz Spot is a dual stage performance area located centrally on the Summerfest grounds that hosts between 20 and 25 performance groups throughout the 3-day PrideFest Milwaukee festival.

View 2017 Schedule

The mission of the stage is to empower and showcase local female-identified 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.

For 2017, we are partnering with local organizations including the Milwaukee Women’s Center to further our support by offering resource informational booths, workshops and presentations.

Additionally, we believe in giving back to our community thru donating the gratuity revenue earned by the dual bars during the festival to a chosen organization that benefits women in Milwaukee (last year we donated $485 to the Milwaukee Women’s Center).

The Wom!nz Spot features a wide variety of artists and genres throughout weekend, including folk, hip hop, spoken word, rock and acoustic.

There are two stages, and two bars located in this performance space.

We serve wine, beer, flavored vodka, soda and water at both of our bars.  Although we are a second floor space, there is an elevator.

The Wom!nz Spot Lounge and Café space is a covered building, but the open windows keeps it open to the elements. It’s the perfect place to get out of the sun, enjoy fresh air and lake breezes, and be part of an amazing local music experience.

wominzspotThe Wom!nz Spot also offers gender-neutral restrooms so that all visitors can have the best possible experience.  Maps of the PrideFest Milwaukee grounds, including all gender-neutral restroom locations, are available at the Information Desk.
