The show’s website says, “It takes a year to create, but for one magical day each year, the world stops as women celebrate with their best friends, sisters, mothers, daughters, and each other.”
This year’s show is designed for just that, with a new look, floor plan and concept that are designed to create a more inspiring day to celebrate and empower women like never before! For over 20 years, the show has given Peoria entertainment, educational and intriguing seminars, and numerous contests and door prizes.
Luckily for you, we’ve broken down each section of the show!
