COLFAX TWP. — The 40th Annual Michigan Womyn’s Festival is set for this week, Aug. 4-9.

“This August, we celebrate 40 magical years of womyn from around the globe gathering in intentional community – where the culture of feminism is the bedrock of our traditions and guides our way of living together,” states the festival website. “Held in a beautiful and remote forest, Michigan is a full-on celebration of female art and culture-filled music, words, dance, workshops, crafts, pageantry and play.”

Thousands of women gather to enjoy the unique celebration, which this year offers 36 performances over six days; three vegetarian meals a day; beautiful woodland camping; hundreds of workshops; a film festival; DJ dances; three child care camps; basketball, volleyball and a 5K run, according to the festival website.

The festival is located at Madison Road and 156th Avenue near Walkerville.
