Celebrities and fashion and firefighters, oh my!
Grab your best gal pals, your sister or mom –heck, gather them all as a group– and head on over to the Abbotsford TRADEX and Exhibition Centre Oct 16-18 for the 15th annual West Coast Women’s Show.
This annual female-centric fete, dubbed ‘Western Canada’s Largest Women’s Show,’ is a feast for all the senses.
From steamy soap stars, tasty nibbles and delicious sips, to the latest in décor trends, health and wellness, fitness and a wide variety of products and services exclusively for women, this is a must-attend event for women for all ages. I attended the show last year and am looking forward to experiencing all the new additions they’ve added for 2015..
Wondering whether you should put this event on your calendar? Here are just 6 good reasons to attend the West Coast Women’s Show.
1. Indulge in Some Retail Therapy
The West Coast Women’s Show is a great place to shop ’til you drop and save at over 400 booths. With all the latest products and services for women from hundreds of exhibitors, you will find everything on your wish list — or, maybe even a good head start on your Christmas shopping.
This year, many exhibitors will be featuring exclusive deals, special offers, giveaways and incredible prizes all weekend long. Just make sure to keep watch for the Red Tag Show Specials — there are over 100 to be found!
And if love looking for hand-made treasures and goodies like I do, you’ll love the all new Artisan’s Marketplace, featuring unique, handmade products, including gourmet foods, by top local artists here in the Fraser Valley.
2. Sizzlin’ Entertainment
With five stages scattered throughout the event, there will never be a dull moment. Keep watch for a special celebrity appearance by Joshua Morrow (from Young and Restless) and a live performance by Vancouver’s very own female rock icon Bif Naked.2. Sizzling Hot Entertainment
There will also be informative cooking demonstrations, wellness and beauty secrets revealed and a community entertainment showcase.
3. Speaking of Hot…
You don’t need a special occasion to celebrate your next girls’ night out here in ‘the Valley.’
On Oct. 16th and 17th, make sure to swing by the main stage for a special 15th anniversary edition of the oh-so-popular Girls’ Night Out! Martini Nights at the West Coast Women’s Show. This year, things heat up as the 2016 Hall of Flame Calendar Firefighters will be heating things up on stage for back-to-back notorious fashion shows.
Have your martini mixed just the way you like it in the Main Stage Lounge and get ready for some sizzle! You’ll be on the edge of your seat cheering them on while they strut their stuff down the catwalk. Martini Nights have never been sweeter. There will definitely be some sizzling going on. Seats are first-come, first-served so make sure to come early to get a great view.
4. VIP Spa Experience
Fall is a great time to experiment with a new look — find the latest trends and play with new beauty products. While you are at the West Coast Women’s Show, take time to relax and pamper yourself with a VIP Spa Experience by Sereno Wellness & Spa. Treat yourself to a Gel Polish application, and Anti-aging hand treatment, facial, skin tightening or makeup application.
