The Trade Show began in 1993 as a fundraiser for Soroptimist International of Oliver. When that group disbanded in 2003, the Trade Show continued through the work of the WOW Club.
The Trade show title “Mainly for Women” reflects our mission statement, with the funds raised going to support our projects which focus mainly on women and children within our community.
Trade show displays feature everything from beautifully handcrafted jewelry to pottery, wood crafts, fibre art, health products and services, real estate and investments, home improvement, fashion, food, and many more themes.
The ‘Mainly for Women’ Trade Show occurs every February, on the third Saturday of that month. Forty to sixty individual vendors showcase their wares in the Oliver Community Centre, where there is free parking for patrons. A lunch and snack area is available.
