It’s been a Russian River pastime for over 25 years, yet this year’s Women’s Weekend is a whole new event, expanded in scope and with a wider array of entertainment. Highlights include an opening-night DJ dance party, live music from Beverly McClellan (NBC’s The Voice) and Lorie Moore (FOX’s X-Factor) and appearances by comics Julie Goldman and Suzanne Westenhoefer. The event also offers a golf tournament, crafts fair, flash mob dance, winetasting, a Sunday jazz and blues lineup, “the Largest Lesbian Single’s Mixer in the World” and many other activities. It all happens Friday to Sunday, Sept. 12–14, at the River Theater, 16135 Main St., Guerneville, and Monte Rio Amphitheater, 9925 Main St., Monte Rio. www.womensweekend2.com.
