Here’s my weekly events round-up! Have an amazing weekend. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway for our amazing parenting seminar happening next Tuesday, November 6th on our facebook page!
Mom Inc. Movement Tradeshow and Conference – Sunday, November 4th, 10am to 4pm. Mom inc. Movement was created to help moms be both successful moms and successful businesswomen. They offer an amazing tradeshow each year, which is FREE to attend and features great exhibitors, inspiring speakers, a Modern Mom Fashion Show, and mini session with coaches. Or, for $60, buy a conference pass, which gets you additional access to several speaker panels on great Mom inc. related topics. I am out of town on the 4th and am so bummed to be missing this!
Vancouver Winter Farmers Market – The Winter Farmers Market starts up again this Saturday, November 3rd, 10am-2pm weekly at the East Parking Lot of Nat Bailey Stadium. I love this market – since there’s only one market in the winter season, everything is in one place! Fresh veggies, great food trucks, music, and a celebration of everything local and delicious. A worthy weekly destination for you and the family.
Vancouver Lullaby League Mixer – Tuesday, November 13th at 7:00pm, Hip Baby
2110 West 4th Ave (at Arbutus). Getting prepared for the holidays includes figuring out childcare! This is the last babysitter mixer for 2012, and spots are filling up, so grab your spot if you are on the look for a new sitter.
Get in line for the Vancouver Inspiration Pass -Want to check out some of Vancouver best (and pricey) tourist sites for free? Get in line for the Vancouver Inspiration Pass, available at the Vancouver Public Library for anyone with a library card. You get the pass for 2 weeks, which lets your family go to local attractions like Science World, The Art Gallery, and Vancouver Aquarium, and more for free! Only catch – it’s popular so get in line by placing the pass on “hold” at your local library. Great idea!
