Cathy said, “This is really to showcase women being badass musicians at any age in all genres, including DJs. It’s a celebration of the arts in the DC scene. Some are returning artists, most are new to the festival.”  City Winery approached Cathy to host HERAFest, and she is eternally grateful for the opportunity to work with such a wonderful venue.

The festival will include a game area for kids and a vendor corner for local women-owned organizations such as Femme Fatale DC, which is a collective of local female creatives and entrepreneurs.

HERAFest is partnering with ArtFarm Annapolis, who will bring their youthful Fearless Female photography class to shoot the whole festival.
