Women’s Expo Features Shopping, Door Prizes and Live Entertainment




Women can head out seeking a taste of spring from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 10, and spend some time together at the fifth annual Dauphin County Women’s Expo at the Hershey Lodge, put on by local OLP Events. The intention is to draw together women of all ages and interests for a lively experience of shopping, entertainment, inspiration and relaxation, and to learn about the latest products and services. Guests can also go home with an assortment of door prizes and giveaways.

With more than 90 exhibitors, from larger businesses to small franchises and “solopreneurs”, the variety of vendors will provide women plenty of opportunities to shop and gather information about health and wellness, travel, home improvements, nutrition, beauty and more.

Throughout the day, the main stage will host live demonstrations and entertainment, from a fashion show by Mechanicsburg’s Three Little Birds Boutique and a musical theater performance by Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre to a cooking presentation by Flinchy’s Restaurant, Bar and Deck, in Camp Hill. Elsewhere on the expo floor, visitors will find a LuLaRoe Pop-Up Shop, stocked with the brand’s colorful and comfortable leggings, dresses and shirts.

Regional Cardinal Hollow Winery, Paradocx Winery and the Vineyard at Hershey, will offer wine tastings from their broad selections of whites, reds and rosés. Then pair a wine sample with some Girl Scout Cookies, available for purchase from Palmyra Girl Scout Troop 71518.

A little free pampering will be available from a massage therapist at Homeland at Home’s booth. On stage, DoPurely, LLC, will explain the beneficial properties of doTERRA essential oils.
