FREEPORT — Exhibitors will offer advice on everything from home decor to retirement savings to cross-fit training at the Maine Women’s Summer Expo from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, June 4, at the Hilton Garden Inn.
The expo also includes a variety of demonstrations including yoga, salsa dancing and cooking, along with beauty tips, fashion, food sampling and wine tasting.
The day will also feature smaller sessions that will pair experts with topics relevant to women, such as raising sexually healthy children, holistic health remedies and more.
Attendees will also be able to shop among some of Maine’s best-known retailers, who’ll be selling everything from jewelry and clothing to bath, beauty and hair products.
In addition, Maine-made products, artwork and other services will be represented.
The event, sponsored by Maine Women Magazine and the Greater Freeport Chamber of Commerce, is also a partner in the Maine Women’s Ride, which is produced by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine. Coastal Studies for Girls of Freeport is the expo beneficiary.
The ride is intended to be a celebration of women and bicycling and offers a friendly, supportive atmosphere geared toward girls and women of all ages and abilities.
