Celebrating Women Festival

The Manistee County Convention & Visitors Bureau has announced the appointment of Catherine Zaring as Festival Coordinator for the Celebrating Women Festival for 2006.

Zaring has taken over the reins of the festival entering its second year, following a successful inaugural year in 2005 under the direction of the CVB staff.

“The Celebrating Women Festival offers a truly unique opportunity for Manistee to capitalize upon market specific events planning. We offer some truly interesting entertainment options for women…events that can highlight the special flavor of Manistee County’s diverse communities,” said Zaring.

Catherine Zaring brings to the festival many years of successful experience managing all aspects of festivals and special events in the Chicagoland metropolitan region. Most recently, she chaired the Wizard of Oz Festival in Chesterton, Indiana…a festival that draws almost 100,000 visitors to the small community over a three day period. She is proud of this festival which has grown to the point that visitors come from across the country and even from eight foreign countries.

The Celebrating Women Festival will be held over the first weekend of May stretching from May 3rd through the 7th.
