In honor of Women’s History Month, the Women’s Expo is held on the 2nd Saturday of March. This event is a celebration of women and of female entrepreneurship. The goal is to educate, support, and inspire our community while encouraging economic growth and equality. The Expo includes speakers that will be an inspiration for everyone; men, women, and children.
The 2021 Women’s Expo will be the same in that regard, but due to the current pandemic, this year's event will be held virtually. This year, we will focus on award-winning authors and have partnered with our local schools.
The Women's Expo highlights many talented women, including authors, artists, artisans, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit groups. It is day of learning, growing, and of course, shopping! So stay home and stay warm, but please join us for this annual celebration of women. You can visit their websites by clicking on the links provided.
