About the event
SAVE THE DATE TO CE-LE-BRATE!
Saturday, August 22nd from 10am-4pm at the State Capitol join in on a nationwide commemoration of women's rights!
In 2020, Americans everywhere will mark the 100th anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, which extended voting rights to women*. If you are in Washington State, the party is here, at the Votes for Women Centennial Festival.
This festival is family-friendly, free, and open to the public with lots to see and do including women-led performances and panel conversations, exhibits, speakers, vendors, music, women-owned and operated food trucks, and more!
So save the date to celebrate the women change-makers of Washington with us.

*Though the 19th Amendment extended voting rights to all women citizens, barriers to exercising that right remained for decades particularly for women of color
