Free tickets available for October Women's Show in York

Free tickets to the 16th Women’s Show are now available to Penn State York students, faculty and staff. Tickets are available on campus in the student affairs office, admissions offices, the box office in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center), the Lion’s Den Café and The Bistro.  

The Women’s Show, Oct. 5 and 6 in Memorial Hall at the York Expo Center, features two days of exhibits, seminars, entertainment, demonstrations and shopping sponsored by 98.5 The Peak and a variety of other businesses. Keynote speaker Barbara Barr, a reporter from WGAL News 8, will speak at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. 

A portion of the proceeds from the show benefits P.I.N.K. Partners, a breast cancer awareness group whose mission is to create an environment in which each individual can find avenues for facing the extreme lifelong challenges with which they have been presented.

Penn State York is among a number of sponsors of the Women’s Show and is offering a blue and white motif for the Lion’s Den Café, one of the food areas at the event. In addition, students from the campus will be doing a fashion show, “Blue, White and WOW – Penn State Fashions,” featuring items that can be purchased in the Penn State York Bookstore. Students will take the runway at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, on the Wilmington Trust Stage in Memorial Hall.

The Women’s Show hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $4 for the general public and may be purchased at the door.
