The Shepherd Express is creating a unique event—one that will inspire, empower and enliven you. We invite you to Woman Up!, a festival dedicated to celebrating women and everything they have to offer.

Guests will be able to sample a variety of delicious food and drink from some of Milwaukee’s best restaurants, chocolatiers and wineries. We’ve also gathered some of the best vendors around, from Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative and DEFENSEWORKS to Arté Wine & Painting and Brewers Organics, all of whom will offer amazing products and luxurious services. Learn about finance, education and healthy living alongside fashion, wellbeing and beauty.

And the best part? The Shepherd is hosting two fantastic celebrity empowerment speakers: Vicki Gunvalson, star of Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Orange County, and Miranda Levy, fashion designer on Bravo TV’s Project Runway, Season 12. Both will share personal accomplishments and keys to becoming a successful businesswoman.


A portion of the proceeds will go to Meta House, a locally-based, nationally recognized nonprofit that offers a gender-responsive substance abuse treatment program dedicated to helping women through the progression of recovery.


This is a festival you won’t want to miss! Woman Up! will be held Saturday, Feb. 8, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Wisconsin State Fair Park Expo Center. Admission is open to everyone. Tickets and VIP Passes are available online at expressmilwaukee.com/womanup. For more information or to become a sponsor or vendor, contact Heather Pechacek at 414-292-3823.
