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. Each year, our members vote for the city that they would like to see Celebration held. This year, we will be in Boston on Friday, October 11th and Saturday, October 12th.


This event boasts our very own Polka Dot Sisters as speakers and vendors. This is the ultimate connect all in one room! If you are looking to catch the feeling and really understand the meaning of sisterhood and our mission, Celebration is for you.

Open to active DOT Sisters from around the globe; Celebration has changed lives. We have seen women grow exponentially both personally and professionally through their connections made at Celebration.
