Oktoberfest celebrates beauty, fashion and style

Each year Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest celebrates beauty, fashion and style at the annual A Blooming Affair Fashion show while showcasing the areas’ leading independent retailers. For over 45 years, A Blooming Affair has been the fall fashion event in Waterloo Region; featuring exciting fall fashions.

A Blooming Affair consistently attracts over 900 attendees each year. With the combination of a hardworking committee of volunteers and consultation with local fashion experts, we present an entertaining fashion show, the opportunity for guests to shop at the trendy Boulevard of Boutiques, and have a chance to win a great selection of prizes and gifts.

A highlight of our show each year is our raffle, with proceeds benefiting a local charity. In 2019, Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region has been selected to be our charitable partner for the 2019 & 2020 events. For more information on Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region CLICK HERE.
