VAGINA FESTIVAL
is an opportunity to have conversations we don't typically get to have. In ways we don't typically get to have them.

Through visual art, performance, and interactive activities – that’s painting, photography, sculpture, print, video, plays, spoken word, monologues, music, poetry, dance and ceremony – Vagina Festival forms a welcoming space for exploring sexuality, body image, personal identity, health and well-being.

At Vagina Festival, we exchange ideas, challenge cultural norms and celebrate women. Men are warmly welcomed.

Vagina Festival is created by artists, performers, organizers and sponsors who are passionate about bringing people together and stimulating conversation. Our aim is to create a fun, moving, thought-provoking experience.
