The Kingston Women’s Art Festival has a long history of providing funds to area programs and services for women and children. This funding support remains integral to the festival. Funds available for distribution are based on the financial success of each year’s event.
We encourage all non-profit organizations serving women and children to come out and support the Women’s Art Festival. A complimentary space will be made available for you to come to the festival, display your information, and talk to our guests about your services. Your help in promoting the festival will help both your cause and ours.
