Annual American Girl Fashion Show

At a certain age many girls are nearly inseparable from their favorite doll. Their mini sidekick becomes a best friend, someone to learn about life with and take on adventures together. Thanks to Hands-on House Children’s Museum of Lancaster girls – and their dolls – will be treated to the ultimate girls’ night out to celebrate growing up as a girl at the American Girl Fashion Show.

The American Girl Fashion Show is an interactive opportunity for girls and their families to learn about the stories of growing up as a girl throughout history and today. Girl “models” will walk the runway as fashion, music, and lively commentary bring to life historical events from the 1700s through today while showcasing the cultural influences that have shaped American history.

After the fashion show, girls can enjoy refreshments and have the option to treat their dolls to a visit to the Doll Salon.

The American Girl Fashion Show will be held November 14-15 at the Conference Center at IU13 in Lancaster. Tickets are $35 per person and include admission to the show, refreshments and an American Girl goodie bag. For more information, show times and to purchase tickets, visit www.handsonhouse.org.

Girls and their families will not want to miss this limited opportunity for fun and fashion at the American Girl Fashion Show!
