The fifth annual Comox West Coast Women’s Show returns to the Comox Community Centre in early October.

The fifth annual Comox  West Coast Women’s Show runs Oct. 4-5 at  the Comox Community Centre.

The West Coast Women’s Show is a lifestyle show for and about women. There will be  exhibits showcasing products, services and information of interest to women, as well as informative seminars.

Organizer Trish Newton Segal has been bringing the Island’s best resources for women to one place since the show started.

“A great place to get together and have some fun in a safe  environment,” she said. “There will be something of interest for women of all ages. This year we are pleased to have Blue Moon Winery participating with a tasting table and we also have Marion Dewar, a tarot card reader extraordinaire joining us. There will also be lots of opportunities to buy fabulous gifts, jewelry, beauty products, fashion and  home decor. Learn about business and financial opportunities, get health and wellness information and much much more.”

A key component of the show is always the information and this year will be no exception with a terrific lineup of seminars over the two days. Naturopath Dr. Deidre MacDonald will have two talks over the weekend: The Seven Habits of Healthy Living on one day and Women’s Health and Natural Medicine the next day.

We will also have seminars on stress management, secrets to a healthy sex life, mental health information and how to use essential oils, to name just a few. Full schedule information can be found at

This years grand prize is a romantic weekend  for two at the renowned Sooke Harbour House on Vancouver Island

Admission is just $2 at the door and includes all seminars. Free admission for those 12 and under.

Some of the proceeds will be donated to the Comox Valley Transition Society.

The show is presented by 97.3 the Eagle and sponsored by the Comox Valley Record, Sooke Harbour House and the Comox Valley Transition Society.
