Top 5 Summer Girlie Fests
It already feels like summer is here, but you can’t seem to make up your mind about where to go on vacation. Not helping the situation is the fact that there are so many great all-girl getaways – unlike five years ago when the choices were much, much slimmer.
The posters are slick bursting with celebrities and hot chicks boasting about the latest must not miss girl bands and artists and laugh out loud funny ladies. We know you are biting your lip and wondering what to do and where to go?
Fortunately, we’ve got your back here at Girls That Roam. We’ve done the hard work hunting down this summer’s hottest all-girl parties, checked them out for you and determined the top five not to miss festivals of the summer.
Girls in Wonderland
June 5 – 9
Why do the boys get to have all of the fun? Not! That’s what the girls at Pandora Events said 14 years ago when they created Girls in Wonderland during Gay Days Orlando. The girls at Pandora Events created one of the hottest parties ever to hit Orlando, Florida proving that girls do wanna have fun with five days of pool parties, late night parties, comedy show and live performances. Cool off at Girls in Wonderland. www.girlsinwonderland.com
EDEN San Francisco V
June 26 – 29
Leave your heart in San Francisco at EDEN San Francisco V, the all-girl party during San Francisco Pride. Five years ago the EDEN Pride Events team decided to shake up the gay mecca with parties, the hottest emerging rock stars, celebrities and those oh so hot Eves. Where do these girls find these women? It goes without saying EDEN is the party in San Francisco attracting the most fashionable women and their friends from all over the world. These girls know how to party and it’s not without benefit, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to the EDEN LGBTQ Youth Foundation, to support queer youth through scholarships, supporting LGBTQ youth programs and other youth initiatives. This is one long party you don’t want to miss. www.edeninthebay.com

Europe’s biggest all-girl week long party getaway, Girlie Circuit, is a week of sun, fun, parties, daytime activities, beach and arts just for girls in Barcelona along the Mediterranean. Did we say Spain? Who doesn’t want to go to Spain? Now in its seventh year, Girlie Circuit is quickly becoming an international sensation attracting thousands of queer women getting down at seven parties with 20 international DJs spinning and more in beautiful Barcelona.

The newest spectacular all-girl weekend is young and hot: It’s Queendom Atlanta. For the past two years, this splashy weekend affair for Atlanta’s queer girls during Labor Day Weekend has given the girls something to talk about long after they go home. Bringing some Miami sizzle to Atlanta, 2Fly Entertainment and Xplosion Entertainment Events, which produces Queendom Atlanta, SweetHeat Miami and other all-girl events, has jam packed this weekend with day and night parties, the hippest DJs from around the world, and up to 10,000 slammin’ hot ladies.
