What to Expect for the 23rd Anniversary of The Dinah

Held April 3-April 7, 2013 in Palm Springs, CA, The Dinah Shore Weekend, now in its 23rd year is expected to be the biggest it’s ever been.

New this year is the "one ticket for two pool parties" admission offering Dinah-goers the unique and fun opportunity to travel through two different ambiances and to fully experience the legendary Dinah Shore Pool Parties.

This is part of the five-year plan that will see the transformation of the iconic mile-long stretch Tahquitz Canyon Way into a Dinah Shore Weekend block party. One ticket gets Dinah goers into everything: pay once, play over multiple days.

Twenty-three years is certainly a milestone for an all woman/all-lesbian event, and speaks volume with regards to the tight bond between not only The Dinah and the City of Palm Springs, but also between the two entities and the thousands of lesbian travelers (either returning or attending for the first time) who uniquely create The Dinah family.

A successful marriage that year after year is going stronger than ever! "It’s all about celebrating our formidable community, and the wonderful experiences as well as exceptional accomplishments we have created and shared together with our Dinah family members over these past 23 years," says Mariah Hanson, founder and producer of The Dinah Shore Weekend.
