Once a year, in early September, several hundred queer women and their female allies get together at a private camp in rural Maryland to create a Weekend like no other.
Pre-Registration ends August 12 - register today!

Don't miss out! Join our Mailing list for the latest Weekend news and updates.
What is the Weekend? It depends on who you ask! Is it a showcase for women's music and a place to discover new artists? Is it a forum for exchanging ideas with and learning from other fascinating and like-minded women? Is it a haven where you can relax and socialize with an exciting and diverse group of new people? Is it a “family reunion” where women return yearly to enjoy time with their Weekend friends from across the country? Is it a space for you to cut loose, push your own limitations to the edge and fully discover the “real” you? Is it an outlet for your queer self to escape from a world run by straight people and become completely immersed in women's space? Is it a kick-ass, three-day, all-girl party in the woods?
Answer: All of the above...and we're waiting for you to join us.
Enjoy some of the best artists of women's music at the Weekend, on both our Night Stage and Saturday Day Stage - plus workshops, sports, videos, crafts, the Sexuality Space, an abundance of opportunities to socialize and meet new people, and so much more. Check it out!
The Weekend's community-powered workshop schedule features sessions on topics ranging from sexuality to yoga to auto repair and more. Share your knowledge and passion with us - submit a workshop proposal now! Check out our growing workshop schedule and our "Workshop Wish List."
The big Saturday Night Dance, late-night karoke, the Sexuality Space happy hour, impromptu drumming sessions, pickup softball games, nights around the bonfire, and days just hanging by the pool in the sunshine... Do as much or as little as you like...it's all up to you.
An amazingly diverse sisterhood of 300+ women awaits you. Even if you don't know a soul when you arrive, you'll leave with new friends and the unmistakable satisfaction of having been a part of something truly special. This is an event you'll want to return to year after year.
Workshops at SisterSpace are collaboratively built by the people attending the Weekend. Our goal is to put together a schedule of workshops that are as interesting and diverse as the many women who attend. In the past, SisterSpace has offered workshops focusing on sexuality, feminism, relationships, body painting, self-improvement, financial planning, car maintenance, salsa dancing, and more!
The SisterSpace Weekend is just the place for you to reach the receptive audience you're seeking for your business or service. If you're a business owner, please consider advertising in the SisterSpace Weekend program book. In addition to being super affordable, it's a great way to support SisterSpace while promoting your business to a wide segment of lesbians/queer ladies from all across the region.
What festival is complete without a shopping experience? If you are a vendor or craftswoman seeking a receptive, lesbian/queer-friendly audience for your goods, check us out. We strive to feature a broad array of vendors—from handcrafted goods, to books, to jewelry, to sex toys, to music, to body workers, to tarot card readers, to clothing—a rainbow of offerings, so to speak! Be sure to reserve your spot early.
SisterSpace is an all-volunteer event. Our workers are the backbone of the Weekend; without them, none of it would be possible. Volunteering at the Weekend can be hard work, but it can be fun, too! It's a great way for women who want to have a positive impact on our Weekend community to meet new people and get more involved. Pre-Weekend volunteers are also needed.
