They are not just another festival they are the other one. The Other Festival.

The Other Festival Female Makers , Creators, Doers + Dreamers. 70 Speakers, 20 Panels, 25 Designers, + Musical Acts. October 14th thru 15th at City Point, Downtown, Brooklyn. 


The second annual event will take place on Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th at City Point and BCG editors will be there. The all-female line up will showcase influencers, entrepreneurs, entertainers, and creators with the mission to educate, inspire and empower women. GLAM4GOOD is the festival’s non-profit partner.

“The Other Festival was specifically created to address the lack of inclusion we saw across the festival landscape. We are so proud of the unique and diverse mix of speakers, exhibitors, and performers we have attracted to the event. Our
goal is to give female founders access to practical tools, connectivity and culture in the city with the large percentage
of women-led start-ups – Brooklyn! It is a one of a kind event, and I am excited to see where this can go. 
— Dee Poku, The Other Festival Founder.
