Event: International Women’s Festival

Tech, Talk, and Trade is the Theme of this Year’s Event


For more than half a decade, folks have gathered in Santa Barbara for the International Women’s Festival to discuss femme-focused topics. The festival “celebrates the accomplishments and nurtures the dreams of women in an interactive, multi-cultural, and multi-tracked program and expo focusing on the critical areas of women’s lives — personal, professional, philanthropic, and planet,” reads the group’s website. This year’s theme is tech (how women juggle the changing landscape of technology), talk (how women use the art of conversation in our personal and professional lives), and trade (how women find balance with the constant demands of professional or philanthropic responsibilities). Guest speakers include actress/activist Kelly LeBrock, TV personality Rona Barrett, and CEO of Global Futurist Dr. Mary O’Hara-Devereaux. The fest is Friday-Sunday, March 7-9, at Earl Warren Showgrounds, 3400 Calle Real. For tickets and information, call the showgrounds at 687-0766 or visit womensfestivals.org.
