The Women’s Expo offers a wide range of entertainment for women to enjoy throughout the day.
Check out the full schedule of events!

Girlfriend Family Feud

Family Feud-Girlfriend Style is coming to the Women's Expo!  This classic game show is sure to entertain the contestants and audiences alike. The game pits two groups of girlfriends of five against each other in a contest to guess the most popular responses to surveys posed to groups of 100 people. The winning team will receive $100.00.


Rise Above

In keeping with last year’s theme to “Rise Above,” two keynote speakers will share their personal journeys of courage and hope with Expo attendees. Luke Nelson, an anti-bullying speaker from Minnesota, shares his story of surviving a stroke before birth and how he overcame being the target of bullying. These struggles pushed Luke to contemplate suicide in high school – but his and his parents’ faith, along with his determination and values, drove him to continue living so that he could help others.

In the afternoon “Rise Above” presentation, Huron native Jennifer Funk Hiles will recount her experience living with arteriovenous malformation that has progressed for decades, affecting her appearance and endangering her physical health. Like many women, Hiles struggled with self-doubt and will share her journey to strength and confidence.
