Darkwater Womxn in Music Festival - Travel & Schedule

We are pleased to announce the third annual Darkwater Festival on September 24-25, 2021! Our home base is the University of North Carolina at Pembroke

At this time, we are unable to confirm whether our 2021 festival will have an opportunity for in-person engagement due to COVID-19. We are staying in contact with UNCP administration in order to respond to state and campus regulations that ensure the health and safety of our participants and members of the Pembroke community. Regardless of our ability to host in-person gatherings, Darkwater will have opportunities for online engagement. We hope to decide our full offerings by July 2021. 

For questions about Darkwater, contact Sarah Busman at sarah.busman@uncp.edu
