Get Your SWAN On

Saturday, March 26: SWAN Day CT ; East Hartford Cultural Center

This coming weekend will mark the fourth annual SWAN Day CT (Support Women Artists Now), being held at the East Hartford Cultural Center. Leave it to Ms Swan Day herself, Jennifer Hill, to even know that East Harford has a Cultural Center, and to put together a fun and awesome female festival of performers and artists. Ms Hill maintains that SWAN is "more Lollapalooza than Lilith Fair" and will represent the wide variety of lady musicians and artists working in Connecticut.

Sure, there is a cover charge of $12, but SWAN promises a full day of musical performances, burlesque performances, live painting, and an art gallery. Spend some time with painter Kerry Kozaczuck, sexy snake handler Nikki LeVillain, face-rockers She Eats Planets, and jewelry designer extraordinaire SuperLula (aka Fitzscenic)... and many, many more talented Connecticut ladies.

And, if drinking beer is something that you're into, know that Olde Burnside Brewing Company will be serving it up at this awesome event.

  1. Did you guys go? I was there shooting video during the first couple hours. What a great event! I was surprised it wasn't better attended, but it was a good venue for it and Jennifer Hill did an amazing job organizing it. I'm looking forward to the next SWAN event.
