What: Ella International Lesbian Festival (shortened nicely to ELLA) is a celebration of the queer women community, where all identifying women can meet in a fun and safe environment. Taking place in Mallorca, Spain for seven years, the festival garnered over 1,500 attendees last year from all over the world, including France, the UK, Germany, the US, and Latin America. The international event is more than just partying; attendees can also expect workshops on topics like self-defense, tastings from some of the world’s top chefs, and as many sports as your heart desires. There’s truly something for everyone at ELLA, even if you’re not a party person.
Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite. Prices start at €15 ($18) and go to €500 ($623).

What: Aqua Girl is an iconic five-day-long celebration and largest charity event for queer women that takes place in Miami, FL. This festival focuses heavily on partying, so this is the place for you if you love strobe lights, loud music, and hot women. Attendees can stay on-site (remote is possible if you need some time to chill) to ensure quick access to this exclusive all women’s weekend in an oceanfront resort. The best part about Aqua Girl is that you’re supporting the Aqua Foundation for Women (AFW) while you party. AFW supports the queer women community in South Florida through grants, scholarships, and other initiatives; it’s the perfect organization to support with your partying!
Tickets range from $15 to $175, and early bird tickets are now on sale on Eventbrite.
Girlie Circuit Festival
When: August 9-13, 2019
What: Girlie Circuit Festival started over 20 years ago and has achieved international recognition since. Claiming the title of “the biggest European lesbian event,” the first annual event saw thousands of queer women overtaking the city of Barcelona, Spain for a week of lounging, indulging, and adventuring. Due to the event’s success, the city is now an international lesbian landmark in the summer. From hot parties DJed by the best the world has to offer to night dips at the water park, Girlie Circuit Festival has a little bit of everything for everyone.
Tickets are anywhere from €20 ($25) to €165 ($205) depending on whether buying tickets or passes and can be bought on their website.
