Rock Chick Rendezvous

Our Rock Chick Rendezvous are kick-ass weekends Kristen hosts where the goal is to pull the Rock Chick Nation together and build the sisterhood through good times and camaraderie. We do road rallies. We hang in bars. We party down, dancing and drinking and getting crazy. We lounge over coffee and chitter-chat.

In other words, we just revel in the beauty of the sisterhood when it’s about nothing but being together, building our bond and having a great freaking time.

We’ve held Rendezvous in a bunch of cities and several countries and we aren’t done because there’s not much better than only having your girls around you as well as having the opportunity to add good women to your posse who will have your back, make you laugh and be at your side even if they’re far away.

Stay tuned here for any news about upcoming Rendezvous!

The Programs

There are three programs that I run under the Rock Chick Nation. Each was developed with a specific goal in mind.

October 24, 2019
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Thursday night’s event will be a casual meet-up with drinking and gabbing with Kristen, Lorelei, Annie and your fellow Rock Chicks on the Terrace in cool as all-get-out Phoenix. Please no signing at this get-together.  This event is open for all (no ticket needed) but drinks and food will be at your own expense.

Dress Code: A Rock Chick is a Rock Chick and she can glam out or go grunge and work it. You’d be comfortable in jeans, a maxi-dress or whatever you wanna rock!

7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Screams, screams, screams!! We will be reliving the antics of the Rock Chicks by visiting the 13th Floor Haunted House. Visit 13th Floor Haunted House for more information.

12:00 pm - 4:00 am

Join Kristen, Lorelei and Annie in the Renaissance Hotel Pueblo Ballroom for a Q & A with the authors and a book signing. This event is open to all (no ticket required).

Rock Chick Reverly
October 26, 2019
7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Saturday night party (with light hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and dancing the night away) will take place in the Renaissance Hotel Grand Ballroom. We will have some fun stuff to do as well whilst communing with your fellow Rock Chicks. This will also be a ticketed event. Ticket holders will receive a swag bag filled with awesome stuff.

Dress Code: We’re doing it differently this year – because it’s close to Kit’s favorite holiday: HALLOWEEN! We invite you to come in costume. No theme, let your creativity go wild. That said, if you’re feeling a night of glamor, and you’re not a costume person, this evening event is a bit ritzier, so treat yo’self! Again, Rock Chicks rock whatever they wanna wear, we want you to feel good about yourself however you wanna be! Just know that for the most part, the Chicklets will be in costume or evening glam, but just be you and work it!

October 27, 2019
9:00 am - 11:00 am

To end the weekend right, Kristen, Lorelei and Annie will meet all the Rock Chicks one final time! This will be very casual and involve coffee (Starbucks available for purchase). Meet them in the lobby to say farewell.
