The Board of Lesbians Benefitting the Arts: Producers of the Ohio Lesbian Festival has spent much time and energy in researching health and safety concerns regarding Covid 19. We have studied the State of Ohio guidelines for the reopening of Ohio including their guidance on large gatherings. After talking to other festival and event organizers we have decided not to host a live, in-person Ohio Lesbian Festival in 2020.

We are researching and considering other options including virtual events and smaller gatherings, however no final decisions have been made at this time. Please keep watching for upcoming announcements.

Mark your calendars now for the 2021 Ohio Lesbian Festival! We have already reserved our new festival home for the dates of September 16 – 19, 2021 when we will again be able to gather in person.

Thank you for your continued support. We are all in this together and we will rise.
