WHAT IS THE 2014 CURVENTION? -
WE ARE AT IT AGAIN! Doing it BIGGER and BETTER! The 2014 CURVENTION: Thickness Appreciation II. An evening filled with Fashion and Performance dedicated to the "Full Figured" woman. The doors will open at 8PM allowing our guests to mingle and shop among various vendors, while listening to the smooth sounds of 518's DJ John Jamz and a live band. Food and beverages will be available for purchase as well. Thickness exudes at 9PM sharp as we open the show with interviews from our cast. The footage will underline the struggles of being a plus size woman, how to over come social defeat and the confident beauty of the curvy women in 2014. The CURVENTION is structured to take audience members on a fulfilling ride of fashion segments, poetry, music, comedy, audience participation contest and much, much more! The goal is to put 518 on the map as CURVENTION being a must see annual event in our Capital District!
