DICKINSON — The Dickinson Press hosted its annual Women’s Expo Saturday, August 27 at the West River Ice Center in Dickinson. The free event featured over 75 vendors and booths, a fashion show, door prizes, shopping, entertainment and more.

The Press has been putting on the event for over 20 years, but this year’s turnout was one for the books, welcoming over 1,000 guests to browse and enjoy the fun. Venders showcased everything from handmade art, jewelry, clothing and makeup to toys, candles, and even dog treats.

Among the many booths were those representing local businesses, and even a few booths that offered educational information. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Badlands Hemp and Club Scout Pack 112 were among the many booths to generate buzz at this year's event.

Attendees had an opportunity to listen to presentations by guest speakers on topics including life enrichment, proper stretch techniques, ADHD management and breath work. The Prairie Rose Barbershop Chorus took center stage in the afternoon, to sing a few melodies for the crowd in a performance that far surpassed the one from last year.

Several smiling little girls modeled colorful clothing looks for back to school and the coming fall season during a fashion show featuring outfits provided by local clothing boutiques such as Chambré, Bee Unique Boutique, Five Girls Children’s Boutique and others.


The Expo offered something fun for the kids including a bounce castle and a painting workshop, and many children were among the crowds.

Shoppers could conclude their browsing experience with a refreshment from Frozen Treats or sink their teeth into a meal at the Kubo Asian and Pacific Cuisine food truck.
