“There’s such a great atmosphere in the show. It’s the time of the year where people are just waiting to get out of the house and shake off the winter. The place is always buzzing,” says show producer Shannon Ross.

Ross loves doing the show because she’s passionate about connecting people and helping women have fun! Here are just a few of the great things you can catch at this year’s Fraser Valley Women’s Expo:
