The Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce is getting set for their annual Business Expo, and complimentary passes are currently available for the event scheduled September 6th.
The 24th annual Business Expo held at the Brownwood Coliseum will feature over 70 businesses in various lines of trade. The show will open at 10:00 AM on Thursday, September 6th and will feature well-known, established businesses as well as some of the newest in the Brownwood Area.
Admission at the door will be $2 and the complimentary passes are currently available for a limited time at the Brownwood Chamber of Commerce office - 600 E. Depot St.
"All visitors to the show will have the opportunity to win booth prizes from each of the exhibitors," said Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce Membership Director Jennifer Barberie. "Those who participate in 'Expo Bingo' may enter to win the grand prize - $500 cash."
For the 12th year, the "Taste of the Brownwood Area" returns to the Expo to offer the community an opportunity to sample favorite recipes from area restaurants and caterers. From 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, expo visitors can sample tasty treats. Each visitor will receive 4 free Taste of the Brownwood Area tickets with the $2 admission fee. Those who choose to enter with a complimentary pass will need to purchase Taste of the Brownwood Area tickets for $1 each at the door the day of the show.
"Make plans to attend, visit with people you have known for years and get to know the new faces in town," Barberie said. "Take time to learn about the products and services offered by each one of these local business owners."
The Brownwood Area Chamber encourages local residents to "shop local" to support local businesses and the local economy.
The 24th Annual Business Expo is sponsored by Songbird Lodge.
