MISSOULA - Massage chairs and tarot readings dotted the entrance to the University Ballroom in Missoula on Saturday as the 11th Annual Women’s Fair kicked off.
Everything from beauty to fashion, aging resources, and numerous local non-profits presented their services. Attendees could get a dollar-a-minute massage or enter raffles to win fine art.
The fair also had live entertainment, ranging from boa constrictors to young cheerleaders performing their routines. The wide variety of vendors and organizations were all chosen with women in mind, meeting needs that women have in their everyday lives.
Event coordinator, Megan Pfaff says that increased turnout meant that they were able to get more entertainment and support more kiosks.
“We completely sold out this year, which is awesome. And we have so many more interactive vendors this year, a larger handmaid section, a whole lot more entertainment. It’s really exciting to see the growth in this event and to see the amount of attendees as well," Pfaff said.
The event has always closely followed International Women's Day which took place on March 8.
