Sip, sample, shop and explore at the Vancity Women’s Expo & Pop-up, coming to the Cloverdale Agriplex and show barn Sept. 21 to 23!
“There’s definitely a lot that’s new and fresh to see,” says Breanna Ross, producing the second annual show with Shannon Ross. Offering everything from health and beauty essentials to business skills and – yes, even vodka tasting – “it’s definitely all-encompassing!”
Designed for women of all ages, the Vancity Women’s Expo + Pop-Up offers a fantastic day out with girlfriends, mothers and daughters to relax, get pampered and have fun. Channel your inner Beyoncé with the Army of Sass, a confidence-building dance training and performance program, explore the world of macrame, and learn about personal branding with a blogging panel that will explore branding and self-worth as it relates to women in business.
From shopping to tasting to learning something new, be sure to allow yourself time to take it all in!
