Spirit of the Suffragettes | Summer Festival
August 20, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at Freedom Square, our outdoor venue in North Troy, to celebrate 101 years of women being able to vote in New York State—two years before the U.S. passed the 19th Amendment! Our Spring ’19 season launches Spirit of the Suffragettes, a summer concert series and community resource fair showcasing women and gender non-conforming musicians from the international to the local.Women still struggle for equity in their everyday lives, especially low-income women, single moms, and women of color. Spirit of the Suffragettes will serve local women in a place where two thirds of children younger than 12 live below the poverty line. Diverse local organizations will share access to information and tools to support women, who bear a heavy load caring for families against all odds.
Spirit of the Suffragettes begins on Saturday June 8th with our 7th annual Freedom Festival. We turn up the heat with six summer concerts, every Tuesday eve July 16th through August 20th! Then we wrap up the Spirit of the Suffragettes concert series on September 21st with our 9th annual StoryHarvest celebration.
