The Owen County Chamber of Commerce and Purdue Extension - Owen County firmly believes in the value of supporting our local businesses. In order to raise awareness and encourage others in our community to shop local first, we are planning the second annual “Showcase Owen County 2015” event (formerly Taste of Owen County) at the Owen County Fairgrounds on April 25, 2015 from 10 am to 2 pm. We will be expanding the event to four buildings at the fairgrounds 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, we are asking any local businesses or organizations that would like to set up a booth to contact us for more information. We are looking for locally owned or operated businesses who are interested in showcasing their goods and services to the fine folks of Sweet Owen.
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. We are asking that businesses and organizations contact us and reserve their spot as soon as possible. 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, please contact the Owen County Chamber of Commerce at 812-829-3245 or the Purdue Extension Owen County Office at 812-829-5020. Purdue University is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action institution.
