For more than 30 years, the Southern Women's Show has shown women a good time while maintaining a focus on health and fitness. For four days this September (Sept. 19 through 22), the fun is back. And so is the motivation to live a healthy life. This year, the show will move to an exciting new home at the Charlotte Convention Center and feature more than 275 exhibiting companies in 100,000 square feet.
"The Southern Women's Show is about food and fashion, but we're also the most exciting health fair you've ever seen," said Tish Atkins, who has been the show manager for 16 years. "We're all about fun, but there's a serious focus on health, fitness and lifestyle, too."
A few health/fitness highlights to look for at this year's show:
The Southern Women's Show has been one of the Charlotte area's signature events for more than three decades. Thousands of mothers and daughters, sisters, co-workers and friends make it an annual tradition. The 31st annual show happens Sept. 19 through 22, but – for the first time – the show makes its home uptown.
Southern Shows pulls out all the stops for this mega-show. It's festive. It's fun. Favorite vendors return each time, but every year sees new vendors and new product launches. Food and fitness. Drink and décor. Health and beauty. Home and garden. Caring for children and caring for the self. It's all here, under one roof. It's a Charlotte tradition. Now in a new, uptown home.
