The Calgary Woman’s Show October 22 & 23 2016
Set your calendar, it is that time of the year again! Time to plan a girl’s day out! The Calgary Woman’s Show is coming to the BMO Centre, Stampede Park on October 22nd & 23rd.
I remember the first time I ever went to the Calgary Woman’s Show. I was a single Mom of two boys, I was in my mid 20s, and I was excited to get out for the day with my friend Jen. Okay, I was excited to see Colby Donaldson from Survivor: The Australian Outback. The point is, I was excited.
I had the BIGGEST crush on Colby. I even bought Survivor The Australian Outback, Season Two, The Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments (featuring NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN FOOTAGE!). I admit it. I had issues. In my defense, have you seen Colby?
Jen and I had a great time at the Woman’s Show that year. We watched Colby speak and have a question and answer segment on the stage, took some photos (of which I keep on my desk to this day – did I mention I have issues?), watched a cooking demonstration by Chef Martin Yan from Yan Can Cook, and browsed the displays gathering up recipe cards, samples and coupons from various venders. I’m pretty sure we entered a contest or two as well. All in all, I remember having a great afternoon out, having some much needed girl time, and Colby. Mostly I remember Colby.
This year, The Calgary Woman’s Show also has a Survivor connection. Joe Anglim from Survivor: Worlds Apart and Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance will be at the show on Saturday at 3pm. For daytime TV fans, Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) from The Young and the Restless will make an appearance on Sunday at 2pm.
The Calgary Woman’s Show is always a great time, with over 300 exhibits, tastings, shopping, and contests to enter. There will be fashion shows, fashion and beauty tips, and lots of entertainment. There is lots of free swag and samples to take home too!
