Ladyfest is an annual music festival typically held on Circuit Avenue and presented by The Ritz to raise awareness and funds for CONNECT To End Domestic Violence. It was co-founded by Rose Guerin and Kelly Feirtag in 2017, with special assistance by The Ritz owner, Larkin Stallings. Previously, the event has featured female musical artists from many genres including rock, soul, and pop, who are mostly based on MV, playing on several stages.
Ladyfest partners with the Island’s own CONNECT To End Domestic Violence. The mission of CONNECT is to reduce domestic and sexual violence on Martha’s Vineyard by changing the social norms through education, advocacy and community mobilization. This also includes providing crisis intervention services, counseling and support services for victims. A portion of profits goes directly to CONNECT, with funds assisting victims with housing, bills, groceries and any other needs.
The actual concert is sold out, but a livestream feed is available.
