American Girl Fashion Shows are so much fun! We went to one a few years ago and my daughter loved every minute of it. The shows, which are held as benefits for local charities, feature local girls modeling fashions from the American Girl collections – Historical, Today, and even Bitty Baby. It is a great way for girls to learn about history, clothing styles through the ages, and have fun, too.

A lot of times they will also have raffles or door prizes, feature local vendors, and special guest appearances. When we went, my daughter was lucky enough to win Licorice the cat as a doorprize and had her photo taken with one of the ballerinas from the Richmond Ballet.

The Special Olympics of New Jersey is hosting a fashion show on October 18 & 19. For ticket details, check the SONJ site. To find out how your organization can host a fashion show, or to find out if there is one scheduled in your area, check the American Girl Fashion Show page.
