Desert Woman’s Show Celebrates 10 Years!

The Desert Woman’s Show is celebrating its 10th fabulous anniversary on January 14 & 15 at Agua Caliente Casino, Resort & Spa and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Expected to draw more than 2,500 attendees, the expo will shine the spotlight on women’s issues offering stimulating seminars on today’s hottest topics including The Latest Secrets to Longevity, Myths of Organic Foods and Cooking Raw & Fresh with renowned Chef Herve of Parker Palm Springs. Top Tests That Can Save Your Life will be discussed by a dynamic cast of female physicians from Desert Regional Medical Center.

Saturday opens with an educational and empowering symposium, Heartbreak of Addiction, featuring a panel discussion with several distinguished individuals who have reclaimed their sobriety.  Hosted by Josie Herndon of Addiction Therapeutic Services, the panel discussion is designed to offer hope and inspiration to families affected by addiction. Public seating will be open to Woman’s Show attendees free of charge.

Saturday also features a Macy’s MOM & Me fashion show under the Desert Sun Fashion Tent with mother and daughter models from our community ranging from 35 to 77 years old, including Desert Health’s own Lauren Del Sarto and her mom, Doris Steadman. Eileen Fisher and Vince Camuto spring fashions will be previewed. Next on the runway is Fashions with Furry Friends featuring the distinguished apparel by Jordan Sack.  Joining our models are their favorite furry friends.  Following this fashion show Loving All Animals will have an adorable pet adoption.

More than 50 exhibitors will gather under one roof showcasing products and services ranging from the latest in beauty, weight loss and anti-aging to apparel and accessories. When the Sunday fashion show is over Charity Bingo (with bubbly!) begins.  It’s every woman’s whimsy come true. 

The ever-popular Taste of the Valley returns this year offering attendees relaxation on the patio under the palms while sampling a cornucopia of tasty food, wine and spirits from some of the valley’s best restaurants. Live jazz will add to the ambiance.

Totally new this year is the VIP Thunder Weekend Pass that starts on Friday at 8 p.m. with a cocktail reception featuring entertainment by the Australian group Thunder from Down Under in The Show theatre at Agua Caliente. Thunder bills itself as ‘the perfect girl’s night out’ with Vegas dance routines, cheeky humor and boy-next-door charm. On Saturday and Sunday, the VIP pass includes pampering specials, fresh juice mimosa, oxygen infusion facial, premium seating at fashion shows and presentations, goody bag, and free admission to Taste of the Valley. Tickets are $100 per person.

The Desert Woman’s Show is brought to you by Diana Marlo Noll of Marlo Productions, one of the top 12 most interesting and influential women in the Coachella Valley. “Giving back, being a part of my community and caring about those around me keeps me grateful for all that life has given me,” says Diana. “I love being busy and championing the incredible women I have met along the way.”

Proceeds from the Desert Woman’s Show weekend charitable events will support Loving All Animals, Addiction Special Grants and the Parkinson’s Resource Organization.
