The 2023 Expo is behind us, and we are working hard to make more improvements to this historic community event. Vendors are encouraged to complete the survey sent to them for feedback and what worked, what we could improve, and how to make the Expo better for 2024.
If you did not attend this year, you missed out on dozens of great local businesses and individuals that want to meet you. You also missed a chance to see some great performers, a STEM robotics demonstration, a chance to meet Poopsie, and a shot at winning $1000. Maybe we will see you in 2024?

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it really free for people to attend?
Yes, it really is free. We believe that access to local businesses shouldn’t cost you any more than you already have to pay. Our mission at the Chamber is to proactively stimulate growth in our region – and by giving our community this great expo at no cost, we allow our community and businesses to prosper through better connections to each other.
Can anyone be a vendor?
Yeah, pretty much. Of course, we do reserve the right to deny a vendor application based on the type of service/product offered, and other applicable laws and facility restrictions. We do want as many Chamber members to participate, but membership is not required to be a vendor. Members do receive a discount too.
