Business, Community & Healthcare Expo...Taste of Kent – April 6th
Mark your calendars and plan to attend this year’s Kent Area Chamber of Commerce Business, Community & Healthcare Expo on Saturday, April 6th from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at Theodore Roosevelt High School. Once again representatives from University Hospital Portage Medical Center will be on hand providing a number of free health screenings.
The event is open to the public and admission and parking are FREE!
Kent-area restaurants, caterers and eateries will be represented in the cafeteria area at the Taste of Kent with samples of their menu offerings. Mr. John Boston, a fan favorite, will be on hand to entertain the crowd while they enjoy the various tastes of Kent from 11:00 am - 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 sponsors and 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 Special Events Information 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.
We welcome the community to come out and patronize the local businesses, and learn more about their products and services, enjoy delicious food samples and listen to great music!
