Didn’t make it to the second annual Femme Fest in NoDa Saturday? No worries, you know we’ve got your back.

On the street, it looked like the crowd was light, but once you entered any one of the venues it became clear that NoDa is the perfect place for Femme Fest to host her celebration of all things feminine.

Artisans had plenty of space to share their wares, music fans could get their boogie on or rest their tootsies in a chair and the crowds didn’t spill into the busy street. Walking from stage to stage, you may have even run into one of the featured performers, like Jill Dineen-Scott, Jocelyn Ellis or The Bowmans (no relation).

Oh, and the Charlotte Roller Girls were there, too!

The crowd, made up of a variety of colors, sizes, ages and orientations, wasn’t for women only; plenty of men were in attendance.
