Who it's for:

This is a ladies automotive educational and networking event for those who want to explore more about their automobiles and other skill sets that are a part of the automotive industry. We cater to ladies who:

  • Are women, or female-identified people interested in learning about cars and meeting the women who service them! It does not matter what realm of the industry you come from: if you are employed as a technician, auto body professional, automotive journalist, photographer, parts counterperson, service advisor; if you are a driver/drifter/racer; if you are an automotive student, automotive hobbyist, or just a wrench-curious lady who is interested in learning more about cars from other women, this is for you!

  • Have only tinkered in the garage every once and a while but want to know more.

  • Have never worked on their vehicle. We highly encourage new ladies to attend these events (so bring those "wrench curious" friends with you that always say "I wanna try"). This is a great learning event and we will have workshops, basics, etc. They will fill up quick so stay tuned for sign ups!

  • Have a lot of experience working on cars. We have some pro ladies coming out so that you can really pick their brains on various topics that interest you and a Meet & Greet to network with these lady pros.

The Basics

Rain or shine, the event will still run. The location has plenty of room for everyone and there is a $20 fee to register for this event unless you choose our limited VIP ticket. All proceeds from this go back into continuing to bring more events to other states. The day is about bringing together women who are interested in learning, being encouraged to tackle things they may find intimidating, and developing community.

PLEASE NOTE THAT UNLIKE OUR PREVIOUS EVENTS, CLASS SIGN-UPS FOR CERTAIN CLASSES TAKE PLACE THE DAY OF TH EVENT ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS.
