Welcome back, Women In Motion!


Spotted in Kenosha News this morning!

There will be two dances at Fridayween: one in the Grand Hall 8:15pm and One in the Main Stage 9:15pm.

You can also enjoy the Hoepner FX demo in the Wisconsin Room. Paul Hoepner FX extraordinaire for the Abandoned Warehouse Haunted House will be doing all the Women in Motion Witches Dance makeup and prosthetic prior to the dances! Make sure you stop by Paul’s booth, check out his work and grab up one of his amazing masks.

Proceeds from all of this year’s scheduled Witches Dance go to The LGBT Center of SE Wisconsin |

Photo Booth moved to the Bristol Room this year!

Our photo booth will move from the Wisconsin Room to the Bristol Room this year. Digital Photos will be taken free of charge by Julia Schiller | Photography and be shown here on our Fridayween Facebook page!

Keepsake Poloraids will be provided for a $5 donation with proceeds going to Kenosha Creative Space! Make sure you stop by and support this Kenosha Non-Profit!

Huge thank you to Elizabeth Vorass of EV Photography for providing the backdrop and lighting again this year! View last year’s photo booth shots by EV Photography via Facebook.
