PLEASE DON’T TELL!  Fashion Show Extravaganza & Speakeasy

Under the big tent, this year’s fashion show will be on a grand scale!  Let’s celebrate the Roaring 20’s with its secret Prohibition-Era establishments and enjoy modern day fashions presented by retailers throughout our community.  Lucky for us, alcohol is no longer illegal, but you may need to know the password to get in!

As in the 1920’s, Speakeasies had a hidden, unmarked entrance and the location was spread by word-of-mouth.  In true Speakeasy fashion, you are invited to spread the word about this event!

LIVE AUCTION!  Dress up in your favourite speakeasy outfit.  It’ll be the bees knees!

Tickets are also available for sale at Honeychurch Lane.  Buy ahead and save – tickets at the door will be $40.

Our fashion show participants include: Aria Boutique, Broderick’s Clothiers, Epiphany, Fergus-Elora Academy of Dance, Gosia Eco Designs, Jaboli, Karger Gallery, Season’s Home Decor Children, Studio Kampina, Sparrows Nest Designers and Zoba Martin Bridal.

Thank you to our local kitchens!  The Friendly Society and V-Edge Cafe.

Thank you to our wonderful event sponsors!  Burke’s Tent Rental in Fergus, The Friendly Society, Elora Home Hardware, Elora Mill & Spa, Heritage River Retirement Residence.
