Sun and fun meet and mingle on October 21 when Girls World Expo comes to San Diego, California (including North County) for a memorable day that could just change a girl’s life.
Girls World Expo does change lives. As girls come together for a day that many find magical, they meet with and hear from successful women in the local community who show them the path to success. They attend workshops, listen to speakers, see demonstrations, science exhibits, and speak one-on-one with women who are leaders in business, government, industry, the arts, and many other realms of endeavor. It’s a rare opportunity for a girl to see what her future could be, and learn what it will take to get there.
But it’s not all work! Girls World Expo is also fun. There’s a fashion show, an art show, music and dance performances by talented local artists, and the always-popular GWE Marketplace, where girls can see and purchase everything from hair accessories to self-help materials, and clothing to jewelry.
It’s not just another Sunday. It’s a very special Sunday. It’s an opportunity to spend a day in a safe, secure environment inspired by the company of other girls and not just seeing but creating the future. Your future.
Girls World Expo is being hosted and made possible in San Diego by U-T San Diego. Girls World Expo—be there from 11-5 on Sunday, October 21 in Mission Valley at the Town and Country Hotel.

It’s a great opportunity for the girls to be together and learn some things. There are a lot of hands-on things here, and that’s great. The more the girls get to try and to do, the more they’ll remember.- Karen Rugare, Erie PA
