Last International Women's Day March 8, 2020, we took the celebration local.  Thank you for coming to celebrate our feminine history & shape our future!

A free day of Music, Performances, Film, Workshops & Pop-Ups along with local Brews, Teas, and Food Trucks in celebration of International Women's Day!

Featuring > Collaborative Art, Yoga in the Park, BYO Tee Printing, VC Women in Business Showcase, Music by Jade Hendrix, and Performances by Folklorica and Vision 2020 Passion Players!

The Marquee Event featured a free film screening of Legalize Equality followed by an inspiring intergenerational dialog between two of Ventura County's fierce feminist sheroes - one of whom help form the first ever US National Women's Political Caucus and has advocated for women at the national level for decades and the other an emerging visionary.  The trailblazer meets an emerging visionary!
