Calling all mothers, daughters, aunts, nieces, grandmothers, etc., the ultimate girls’ day out is coming to Chilliwack and you don’t want to miss it.

From March 3-5, the Fraser Valley Women’s Expo will be held at Chilliwack Heritage Park, 44140 Luckakuck Way, offering a fun-filled refuge for relaxation, pampering and retail therapy.

Highlights include: great shopping at over 200 exhibits, free samples, exciting entertainment, free makeovers, fashion shows, informative workshops, cooking theatre demos, food and wine sampling, career and business resources, decorating and travel ideas, a vintage market, health and wellness advice, fantastic prizes, and much more.

“We’re the largest women’s event in Chilliwack and the second largest in B.C.,” said Shannon Ross, producer of the FVWE who been working in the show event business for 17 years.

Chilliwack Heritage Park offers over 60,000 square feet of space for exhibitors to lease and is a growing market destination for many different tradeshows throughout the year.

Thousands of people visit Heritage Park annually to attend various events, such as yard garden and renovation, RVs, outdoor living, home and leisure, 4H shows, dog shows, motorcycle shows, etc.

Exhibitors currently signed on for the FVWE include the following categories:  apparel & fashion accessories, beauty and fragrance, confections & gift assortments, fitness & equipment, fashion & lifestyle, hand crafted arts, health & wellness, cuisine & entertainment, medical services, home decor, women’s sports teams, nutrition, skin care products, spas & salons, dating services, banks and financial institutions, wireless companies & technology, women’s civic groups & clubs, and more.

“This event is a reflection of the diverse, growing community we have here and all that it has to offer,” said Ross, who has lived in the Fraser Valley for more than 30 years.

Ross says with the increase in shopping options out in ‘the Valley’ that go beyond the standard urban sprawl big box stores, there’s no need to head downtown.

“We aren’t Vancouver and we like it that way, but we also like to shop! The expo really gives women a chance to do that and showcase the wonderful vendors and exhibitors in our neck of the woods.”
