Second annual W3 fest to be held on April 28

DOVER — The W3 What Women Want Fest plans to offer women a few hours of fun, laugher and memories during its third annual event on April 28.

The fun and casual, “women only” festival will include vendors, food, demonstrations, door prizes and giveaways in a festive, relaxed atmosphere.

The event allows women of all ages to get resources and advice they to need to live happy, healthy and successful lives.

“It’s a great event,” said Tonda Parks, senior advertising executive for the Delaware State News. “It’s a day where women can get together and have a great time.”

The festival presented by the Delaware State News and sponsored by Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. will be on April 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Wild Quail Golf & Country Club in Wyoming.

The festival will also have a fashion show with clothing and accessories provided by Talbots of Dover.

The What Women Want Fest, or W3 Fest, was created by the Delaware State News after noticing that there weren’t many events geared specifically to women and their needs in the local area.

The event continues to grow each year, as Ms. Parks hopes this year’s new location at the Wild Quail Golf & Country Club in Wyoming will enhance the experience.

“We just wanted to try something different this year,” Ms. Parks said. “We want everyone to enjoy themselves and to have a great time with all the different activities that’s available during the festival.”

The Biggs Museum of American Art is the Charitable Fundraising Partner. They will be on hand to present information about their exhibits and events for their 25th Anniversary. They will also offer event attendees a chance to show their creative side with a “make & take” craft project.

There will be lots of other vendors to visit for fitness, fashions, jewelry, home decorating, beauty, art, vacations and more.

Attendees will also be able to join demonstrations like ZUMBA Powered by Kyle presented by Dover YMCA, as well as getting tips to help improve finances, planning cruises and learning about local volunteer opportunities.

A buffet will be available throughout the day so attendees can snack while they shop, watch the demonstrations and visit with the vendors. This year’s signature cocktail is a W3 Mimosa.

“I’m excited,” Ms. Parks said. “We’re expecting a great turnout. It should be a fun day for everyone.”

Tickets for the event are on sale at They are $7 in advance or $10 at the door the day of the event.
