See you in September

For Immediate Release
2020 Ohio Lesbian Festival News

Greetings from the LBA Board (Lesbians Benefiting the Arts) and the Ohio Lesbian Festival Production Team! 

We want to update the Ohio Lesbian Festival Community on our progress regarding OLF 2020.   At this time we do not have a confirmed location or date. As many of you know, Hoover Y Park (where OLF 2018 & 2019 took place) is for sale.  We are tentatively hopeful that whoever purchases the land will continue to utilize it as an event space but that is not yet known and will not be known in the immediate future.   

The LBA Board has formed a Venue Search Committee and they are currently in the process of looking at other venues that might suit our needs for 2020.  Our hope is to have a confirmed location and date by March 31, 2020.  

If you have any ideas or suggestions for possible event space in central Ohio, please take a minute to fill out the following Venue Search form  or email the information to  Heather at 

We know that for many of you scheduling your vacation time in advance is a factor and we are trying our best to have that information as early as possible.  We will keep the OLF community notified and updated with our progress as soon as we have any decisions.

Thank you for your support in continuing to build women’s community with LBA & OLF!
