What is Celebration?

Polka Dot Powerhouse’s Annual Celebration is our biggest event of the year!

Celebration is open to our current DOT Sisters, so join us as we connect, collaborate and motivate at this two-day event. This year, we will be in Minneapolis on Friday, October 8th and Saturday, October 9th.


General Membership:

Our annual Celebration is an event that occurs in a Chapter City every year on the second weekend of October! At this event, we showcase our very own Polka Dot Powerhouse Sisters as speakers and vendors. If you want to experience more connections on a bigger scale, this event is for you and your Chapter sisters! Our Annual Celebration is a place to learn our history, gain insight from professionals in their fields, share your knowledge and understand our Mission!

Celebration has brought confidence, friendships, business expansion, personal/professional development and connection from all areas of our organization to ONE place each year! You don’t want to miss our annual event because what happens at each one is unique, amazing and once in a lifetime based off each of the members that attend! Once you go, you will forever want to, because each one has memories that are made that can’t be replicated! Find your long-lost sister at Celebration this year!

We can’t wait to see you there!


Managing Directors & Chapter Leadership:

Did you know we have a special day set aside JUST for you every year the day before Celebration begins? OH YES WE DO!

Our very special leadership day is a day where you get to connect to other leaders from all over and discover endless ways to improve, grow, retain, facilitate fun and become the best MD or Chapter Leadership your chapter has ever seen! It’s an opportunity that we offer to only current leaders each year! In the past 9 years, our MD’s and Chapter leaders get to share their ideas, what works, what has not and the “how to” to help you elevate your members experience as well as your own! You don’t want to miss this special day! Add this on to your agenda! You will be so glad you did!

The tentative schedule for Leadership Day is:

8:30am Check in
9am Welcome
9:15am - 11:30am Leadership Activities
11:30am - 12:30pm Leadership Lunch
12:30pm - 3:30pm Leadership Activities
3:30pm End of the Day


Your business needs to be front and center at Celebration! We know there is a DOT for every product and service, why can’t it be you? Celebration is structured so YOU can also enjoy the speakers and events along with showcasing your business.

Our dedicated vendor times provide an exclusive focus on our vendors and their businesses. It’s going to be a great way for you to interact personally with DOT Sisters who want to connect with your business.

Special Vendor Perks Included
  • You will be the first group at meals prior to vendor times!
  • Ability to include marketing media into welcome bags at no additional cost!
  • Access to a special downtime snack room!
  • Your name and business information listed as a Vendor in our Celebration Program!
  • Special training to enhance your vendor experience!
All Included!

Attendee/Vendor Bundle Ticket pricing is $729, and includes admission to Celebration and your vendor table.  We allow ONE Dot Sister per business. This is key to note for direct sellers as we will allow one table per company. It’s also a great way to collaborate with other DOTS in the same business as you! We encourage others to work together and partner to represent your awesome companies.

Your vendor profile will also be featured on in our social media posts and emails going to all Celebration Attendees! Just think of the boost of business and sisterhood you will gain with this added exposure.


Market your business or share your Dot LOVE by creating an ad in the Celebration Program book!
ALL members may create a Chapter Cheer Ad and/or a Dot Love Note to CELEBRATE our Sisters with a surprise note of support and care!
