How does a day that focuses on just you and all the girly things that you enjoy – pampering, shopping, fashion and inspiration sound? If you’re like me, ecstatic at the thought of spending a day which celebrates you, your interests; allows you to connect with other women and simply relax, then Girls Only (GO) Festival in Melbourne on March 15 and 16 at the Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton is where you need to be!
Why Girls Only(GO) Festival?
The search for “me” time and a passion to succeed inspired Susan Dibbs to organise the inaugural GO festival in February 2013. Attended by over 4000 women and over 100 exhibitors (a majority of whom are female) this event’s resounding success gave rise to a second festival in October held at the Melbourne Showgrounds. Susan says, “After spending years meeting women and hearing about their stories and all the sacrifices they make for their children, family and friends, I saw a need for these women to receive back and be celebrated in their own right”.
“It’s my goal to continue growing GO Festival so that women of all ages can come together and enjoy a fantastic and affordable day out. So far we have had inspired 8000 women via our events and hope more will continue joining us at GO”.
GO Festival is held for women and features 100% female focused products and services. Attendees are invited to enjoy a massage or healing, to attend a free workshop or a self defence class. Women can also enjoy a fashion parade or chat to our experts on board, exploring areas such as self-esteem, fashion, finance, motherhood, aging and health. For the first time ever in 2014, GO will be hosting an intimate Psychic Zone for those adventurous souls who want to know what their future holds!
Feedback from attendees
Visitors to the first GO Festival brimmed with enthusiasm as they provided glowing feedback:
A very good weekend. We had some wonderful conversations with women. I particularly enjoyed seeing mothers and daughters enjoying themselves.
For a ‘first time’ effort….I give you a BIG 10/10…….had a great day in the company of my daughter and a lovely friend.
It was an amazing event and extremely well organised! Can’t wait for the next one.
