"Women hold up half the sky," according to a Chinese adage. The Half the Sky* Fair is a lively celebration of the light and hope that women represent around the globe. Meet dedicated individuals from women-centered non-profit organizations like ours that empower women and girls worldwide. At the Fair you will find entertainment, food, and handcrafted gift items created by women entrepreneurs from around the world.

The International Market will offer the wares of artisans and businesswomen working around the world to eradicate poverty through entrepreneurship and fair trade.

The Half the Sky* Fair is an annual event created by a group of students and alumnae of the Women's College of the University of Denver dedicated to the protection and advancement of women and girls. Produced entirely by volunteers, the annual Half the Sky Fair donates all net proceeds to selected local and international nonprofit 501(c)3 charities that support the empowerment of girls and women through education.

*Inspired by the best-selling book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
