Reserve Your Booth Space Now For ‘Showcase Owen County 2016’ Event

Staff Report

The Owen County Chamber of Commerce and Purdue Extension-Owen County firmly believe in the value of supporting local businesses. In order to raise awareness and encourage others in our community to shop local first, the two entities are planning the third annual “Showcase Owen County 2016” event at the Owen County Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

This year’s event is expanding to multiple buildings and even offering outdoor booths. The goal of this event is to educate community members that buying local goods and services directly impacts the local community and allows for economic growth of individual businesses and eventually, the entire county. In preparation for this event, organizers are asking any local businesses or organizations that would like to set up a booth to telephone for more information.

Individuals setting up a booth may choose to provide samples of their goods, give coupons, sell products, or just raise awareness about their organization through marketing and promotional tools.

The cost per booth is $25 for businesses; non-profit organizations will pay $15 and civic organizations will not be charged. Each booth includes a table and two chairs. Electric is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

To find out more about this event or to reserve your booth, contact the Owen County Chamber of Commerce at 812-829- 3245 or the Purdue Extension Owen County Office at 812-829-5020.
