The 2015 Women’s Expo theme is “Leaves & Laughter.” Women will experience exhilarating décor, booths filled with specialty shops, one-of-a-kind finds, cooking demonstrations, health screenings and important educational booths!
The fun begins on Friday, September 25, with a special presentation of Taste of Home Cooking School LIVE at the Huron Event Center at 6:30 p.m. This exciting stage demonstration of approximately 10 recipes will last around two hours and appeals to cooks with all levels of food experience. VIP ticket holders receive a free cookbook autographed by the Celebrity Chef and premier seating.
On Saturday, September 26, Expo attendees can enjoy a variety of entertainment throughout the day including Chris Miller who will provide interactive music and entertainment in the relaxation area; Amy Dee-Kristensen, the Truth Fairy, who presents extraordinary entertainment with an empowering message; and Divas through the Decades will round out the day with musical tribute to some of the most influential female vocalists of the 60s, 70s, 80s and today.
Back by popular demand is the Newlywed Game which features local couples who have been married less than one year. Women are invited to pamper themselves with a manicure, pedicure or massage in the day spa. They can take a break in the relaxation area while sipping a glass of wine or beer. Ladies will also enjoy a little “retail therapy” as they stroll through three buildings filled with merchandise from a wide variety of vendors. The gift baskets will also be back – bigger than ever, filled with goodies!
Vendors won’t want to miss out on presenting your products to the more than 1,000 women in attendance. Save $25 by completing a vendor registration in by the early bird deadline of June 30.
