Four years on and still going strong, Ladyfest Ottawa is a non-profit, primarily women-organized music and arts festival that is open to everyone. Ladyfest is a volunteer driven festival that both showcases women's artistic expression and shares ideas through music, spoken word, performance, film and video, exhibitions, panels and workshops.
