Oh ladies, it’s a new year, which means we’re all trying our best to make positive changes and have a little fun as the post-holiday months settle over us. This January is packed with fabulous events for women and girls of all ages around West Michigan, so let’s sprinkle as much girl time into the new year as we can!
1-31 January 2018
This exhibit at The Public Museum in Downtown GR is an awesome family activity for mothers and daughters (and anyone else in the fam who wants to tag along!) The exhibit features both models and replicas of the mystical specimens, in addition to fossils of real prehistoric animals that help explain how some of these otherworldly creatures may have been inspired. This show is running all of January and into the spring months, and it's such a fun way to tie science and fantasy together!
3-7 January 2018
This tournament is hosted by one of the longest-running women's professional sports organizations in the world--The Women's Professional Billiard Association. If you want to see some awesome women compete in what is often considered a male-dominated sport, stop by Soaring Eagle for this action-packed weekend of billiards and babes doing their thing.
4-25 January 2018 (Thursdays)
Maybe you're looking to pick up a new hobby this year, or maybe you're already an avid quilter--either way--join the fun at Coopersville Farm Museum every Thursday of the year! The primary focus may be quilting, but anyone interested in crocheting, sewing, or anything else textile related should come out and get to know the crazy ladies. Don't be intimidated if you don't have any experience; every level of knowledge is welcome to join!
14 January 2018 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Though we may all have a princess inside us, this event is for the little ones! Your little princess and her friends will have the most perfect make-believe afternoon pretending to be princesses in the historic and extravagant Henderson Castle Inn. The afternoon will include photo opportunities with the princesses, storytelling, ballroom dancing, and a guided tour of the castle. Wait, are grown-ups allowed on this adventure?
14 January 2018, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
If you or anyone you know is planning her big day in 2018, you can't miss this show. Honestly, even if you're not planning your big day, who doesn't love a little wedding daydreaming? There will be door prizes, cash giveaways, free food and drink, a fashion show (!?), enough said.
18 January 2018, 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This is your year to get motivated and work your booty off! With that being said, what better way to jumpstart that motivation than by surrounding yourself with other hard-working women. The conference will feature two keynote speakers who share their stories (one on healthcare and one on finance) and then lead several hands-on activities to help you engage and connect! The theme of this year is Educate & Empower, and what could be better than that?
18 January 2018, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A BODY POSITIVITY CAMPAIGN FOR WOMEN! Do away with those self-defeating New Years Resolutions and discover 2018 Reasons to Love Yourself More! Join us for an evening of cake, cocktails and conversations about Body Positivity, Self-Worth and Girl Power. There will be a panel discussion, vendor tables, pop-up shops, photo booth, small bites, vision boarding, and special giveaways. We encourage you to arrive picture perfect in a wardrobe that makes you feel sexy and empowered. Click here to purchase tickets!
20-21 January 2018 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Wait you're telling me there's a ladies weekend and a vintage market popping up at the same place on the same weekend?! Count me in! These two events include LuLaRoe and other craft vendors, demonstrations, and giveaways, plus two full rooms packed with antiques, shabby chic, boutique clothing, vintage, home decor, and more! What else are you going to do with all the Christmas money if not spoil yourself with an amazing shopping weekend with the girls?
Let us know if we've missed anything going on this month!
