Attention, women of all ages. The inaugural Rocky Mountain Women’s Expo will be held on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Two Rivers Convention Center (159 Main St., Grand Junction). The event — created as a way for local women to explore female-centered topics and services — will offer more than 75 vendors spanning health, fitness, fashion and more.

“It’s designed to celebrate women,” Rocky Mountain Women’s Expo event organizer Julie Shafer said. “It’s for women who love to shop, learn about exciting new business opportunities, and find resources to help enrich their lives.

“Our focus is to feature local businesses offered here in western Colorado.”

The entrance fee is $5 at the door, and the first 1,000 attendees receive a commemorative bag. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Delaney Donates. Mesa County Fire Chiefs Association’s pink fire truck and firemen will also be present at the event. A flu shot station will additionally be open for the duration of the expo.

According to Shafer, it’s an opportunity for women to network and discover new businesses, too.

“We are all fortunate to live in western Colorado,” said Karen Martsolf, marketing director for Community Hospital, in a news release. “Rocky Mountain Women’s Expo is a great way to bring many professionals and businesses together for women in this area.”


Upon arrival, head to Two River’s main stage to watch fashion shows, as well as view purses and jewelry.

After enjoying some fashion, head to the cooking booths. Citrolas Italian Bar and Grill’s (624 Rae Lynn St., Grand Junction) will offer samples, and DoubleTree by Hilton (743 Horizon Dr., Grand Junction) will host cooking demonstrations. A mixologist will additionally present demos, mixing together holiday cocktails, explaining wine pairings for dishes and more.

Party planners will be available as well to talk best practices for hosting holiday celebrations.

Home decor booths —including Atlastas Solar, G.J. Gardner, Ambassador Blinds and more — will also be on site.

Following the expo, head to Marlo’s inside Springhill Suites (236 Main St., Grand Junction) from 6-9 p.m. for a free cocktail hour.
