One of our valley’s favorite events, the Desert Woman’s Show celebrates its 14th anniversary on Saturday, February 19, at the Classic Club in Palm Desert. While the location has changed, the promise of an engaging “girl’s day out” remains the same.
Presented by Desert Vein & Vascular Institute, the festive event offers plenty of shopping from local fashion boutiques, two fashion shows, medical and wellness experts, an eye-opening panel discussion: All About Cannabis presented by The Lighthouse Dispensary, live entertainment and the ever-popular Greater Palm Springs Food & Wine.
This year’s Fashion Marketplace will feature new additions including Kyle & Shahida from Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards, Stephan Cori, Modern Oasis, Cambria Court Designs, and City Lites. Returning favorites include Pete Carlson’s Golf and Tennis, The Shops on San Pablo, Coco Rose, Gaby L’s and Macy’s, to name a few.
Sip and savor
The ever-popular Greater Palm Spring Food & Wine tasting will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. offering a cornucopia of tasty food, wine, craft beer, spirits, non-alcohol beverages and live music sponsored by BuzzBox Premium Cocktails.

Farley’s eatery, Wildest Restaurant & Bar, will be sampling savory delights along with other valley notables: Mastro’s Steakhouse (oh my, those butter cakes!), Wally’s Desert Turtle, Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill, Brandini Toffee and Big Rock Pub.
