LADYFEST is an annual music festival held on Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs, MA and put on by The Ritz Cafe (4 Circuit Avenue) on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. It was co-founded by Rose Guerin and Kelly Feirtag in 2017, with special assistance by The Ritz Cafe owner, Larkin Stallings.
The event features artists from many genres of music including rock, soul, and pop. The event includes several stages, with the main stage anchored at the top of Circuit Ave and a secondary stage in Healy Square. The first annual show was held inside of The Ritz Cafe in October of last year and has grown out onto the street.
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. All proceeds above direct event costs go directly to CONNECT.
LADYFEST also partners with Mvyradio, the Vineyard’s own non-commercial local radio station.
Attendees who purchase a bracelet for a donation of $10+ will receive a 10% discount to participating island establishments for that weekend.
Last year, The Ritz Cafe raised $2,000+ for CONNECT with a goal to raise $10,000 in its 2nd year.
