The 1st annual Wedding, Party and Gift Show is set to come to the Golden Civic Centre on Oct. 14.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will have approximately 40 vendors.

One of the organizers for the event, Thea Hansen, has a history of working in the sales/marketing industry.

“The more you know about your surroundings and available amenities, and the more you can share your knowledge, the more valuable you are to your customers. I try to encourage this as I believe it makes a business memorable.  My goal as an event and business promoter in the Columbia Valley is to help make our little corner of the world unforgettable,” she said.

Hansen explained she decided to hold the event after, “some retailers and business owners expressed a need to have more opportunities to showcase what they have to offer. It also brings attention to business owners that do not have regular store fronts to reach the general public. As well, the Columbia Valley is becoming a huge event destination. So something like this seemed the next logical step.”

She added that events like this are important to places like Golden because, “the more we can advertise and market our Columbia Valley assets, the more people will look to us for their Staycations and Destination Wedding Events etc. Putting businesses under one roof makes it easy for the consumer to investigate their options and put a face to the service provider that they may have only seen on line or in print.”

The show will also have musicians and belly dancers, accommodators, pastry chefs, gift suppliers, fashion, DJs, hairdressers, photographers, and door prizes.

The cost to drop by the event will also help local charities.

“We want this to be a true community event so it will be a $2 admission or a donation to feed the two-legged or four-legged members of the flock. The Golden Food Bank or Little Mittens,” Hansen said.

She added the show will be a chance for people, “to have fun, and to see some great entertainment options for planning any special memory, whether it be a wedding, anniversary, birthday or staff function.”
