arts_festival_cancelled
It is with great sadness and disappointment that the YWCA Westfield is announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Arts & Crafts Festival. Despite our many efforts to move forward with this event by complying with COVID-19 guidelines and collaboration with local officials, the new travel restrictions, and increasing cases in Chautauqua County necessitate this decision.
To our beloved vendors, the YWCA Westfield will be contacting you directly. We look forward to seeing all of our vendors and patrons at next year's festival, July 30th & 31st, 2021

YWCA Home

YWCA USA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. We are one of the oldest and largest women’s organizations in the nation, serving over 2 million women, girls, and their families.

YWCA has been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements for more than 160 years — from voting rights to civil rights, from affordable housing to pay equity, from violence prevention to health care reform. Today, we combine programming and advocacy in order to generate institutional change in three key areas: racial justice and civil rights, empowerment and economic advancement of women and girls, and health and safety of women and girls.
