Galentine’s Day Celebration

Go ahead, ladies. Celebrate your romance on Valentine’s Day. But save Galentine’s Day for your female friends. The “ladies celebrating ladies” holiday honors friendships between women and was first introduced by Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope in a 2010 episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation.

Traditionally this takes place on February 13th but we will be celebrating on February 12th.

Men are welcome as well but we encourage you to grab your bestie and come celebrate your favorite ladies! We will have female bands playing, Valentine’s Day gifts and merchandise, new artwork themed for feminist icons, AND in the studio in the back we will have a DIY waffle station and DIY galentines day card station!

The event will start at 6pm where you can come in, grab a waffle, and listen to some sweet DJ tunes of lady artists by DJ Shred/Destroy, who will be playing in between sets.

Hoe Garden – playing 7:30pm-8:00pm, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Kill plays 8:30-9:00pm.

Our art exhibition will feature special new feminist themed artwork and craft from local female artists Shalan D. McGrinder, Brittney McCormick (Miss Happy Pink), Jenn Meyers from Sinisters, Sarah Essing, Melissa Bracken, Amy Dalrymple, Mary Levinsky, Jessica Bledsoe, April Boyd, and Kayla Allinger.

We will be partnering with Gretchen Bell from Fleur Design Studio who will be selling unique floral bouquets. We will also be partnering with FEVA – Fair Event Vendor’s Alliance, and the Louisville Outskirts Festival.

We are proud to be a female owned business and love to support female artists! Bring your girl gang out and support your local creative community! No cover!
