The Women in the Arts Festival (WITA) is a celebration of regional women artists that takes place during the second weekend of November each year in East Lansing, Michigan. The festival begins on Friday evening with dinner at the Sistrum Café, shopping in the Artist Market and a concert event. We gather again on Saturday morning for more music, workshops, poetry, shopping, dining and socializing into the evening. This festival is an important commitment women make each year to renew our support for women artists and musicians. WITA is a volunteer-run organization with a commitment to support women in their creative pursuits and the goal of creating space for women to showcase their talents.
