Join us for this year’s Kent Area Chamber of Commerce Business & Community Expo on Saturday, March 17th from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at Theodore Roosevelt High School. As always, the event is open to the public and admission and parking are FREE!
Once again Kent-area restaurants, caterers and eateries will be represented in the cafeteria at the Taste of Kent with samples of their menu offerings. The Taste of Kent runs from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Tickets will be sold for $1 each or six for $5. Proceeds from the tickets sold at the Taste of Kent will benefit the KACC’s Dan Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund.
This truly is a community event and its success depends on an impressive number of entities working together including: Kent City Schools, Kent State Intercollegiate Athletics and the City of Kent Health Department. In addition, the Chamber collaborates with members of the Theodore Roosevelt DECA program on the coordination and execution of the annual event that annually attracts well over 1,000 attendees.
Business owners, organizations, crafters/home-based business owners interested in participating in this year’s event may obtain applications at www.kentbiz.com under the EXPO tab, or by calling the KACC office at 330.673.9855. Placement consideration will be given to return participants, KACC members and new vendors in that order.
