Hi, this is Pat Hogan and Claire Robson, co-organizers, here to tell you a little bit about BOLDFest.  

The short video (scroll to bottom) is the best possible introduction to BOLDFest, no matter when.  So many faces! So many great memories!  And they continue, from year to year. Thanks to videographer Angelina Cantada. 

What you've been saying about BOLDFest

"Boldfest is one of the few places on the planet that I can be myself and feel valued and appreciated."

"Women's energy in a beautiful city, great hotel, three blocks from one of the best parks in the country and in the other direction the gay heart of Vancouver. I could go on...and keep returning for ever..."

I don't know why it took me so long to get to BOLDFest. But, I'm hooked!  Expect me back every year!

I'm so glad I found this community of supportive, funny, diverse, activist wimmin!  Sign me up!

BOLD, a non-profit society, has as its mission to raise the visibility of older lesbians, and to provide a venue to meet and to share information and opportunities for learning, networking, support and organizing. For the last 13 years, the Bold Old(er) Lesbians & Dykes Conference has attracted lesbians aged 45+ -  AND younger women - from across Canada, the US and even Australia!

We convene this year, for the first time, at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel on W. Hastings @ Bute Street, over the  Labour Day weekend. Our home for the past 13 years, the Coast Plaza Hotel, has been closed and while we will sadly miss it and the staff, we look forward to an exciting new hotel replete with bidets in all bathrooms! Coast Coal Harbour is one block from Coal Harbour with stunning views of the mountains and Pacific Ocean. 


Your donations, whatever the amount, help women to attend BOLDFest who might not otherwise be able to and otherwise help us to meet expenses. We are a volunteer driven team and our reward is putting on a memorable weekend that you will cherish forever! We thank you in advance for your support. Please use either the Donation button below, or fill in the appropriate line on the registration form (click on registration button to left) and mail in with your cheque/check.  Again, many thanks!
