Tammi Fest is a family friendly eclectic music and art festival. It's hosted by the Own Your Own Universe non-profit organization that specializes in transforming lives through music and the creative arts. Terri Hendrix hosts this annual event through the OYOU, in honor of her sister, Tammi Hendrix, who passed away March 8th, 2018. Tammi was a member of the LGTBQ community and staunch supporter of events that celebrate diversity, inclusion, community, and the arts. Like all OYOU events, Tammi Fest will be fully accessible for people of all ages and to those with social or mobility issues.

Our annual ultimate gal-pal getaway for ages 25 and up! We sing, dance, create, and share experiences and opportunities for self-growth through a myriad of mind-body-spirit activities. We will be hosting two back to back retreats to accommodate more guests. Both retreats will feature the same itinerary.
Your donations not only help us pull this retreat off, you help us keep it affordable for those that wish to come. Several women in need are gifted scholarships to attend this annual women's retreat for free. Our women in need are undergoing or have undergone treatment for cancer, or have other underlying financial, physical, and or emotional conditions that render them in need of this gal-pal getaway. This retreat inspires and transforms the lives of all that attend.
Please consider donating or hopping on board to become an official 2023 sponsor! Your $300 donation will scholarship a woman to come to this retreat free of charge. It'll also cover their room and all meals! Sponsors are included on our website and in promotional materials for this event.

The OYOU Women's Group is a tribe of inclusive women who play music, sing, write, and create. We're working to make this world a better place one note at a time.
Basically, we gather and sing our favorite cover tunes out of a book. Those that can play an instrument, play it. Those that don't, just sing. We laugh, sing loud, and cast no judgment on our skill level. We just go around ... in a round ... and pick what we want to sing and then all join in! It's a hoot! Periodically, we meet at local nursing homes and rehabilitation centers to share our love of music with others.
The OYOU Women's Music Group usually meets the first or second Sunday of every month from 1:00PM to 3:00PM at Wilory Farm, in Martindale, Texas. We also host this event online, through Zoom, so women from all over the world can join us!
