The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce is organizing a new community event called the Community Showcase brought to the public by Marquee Sponsor, Axdahl’s Garden Farm & Greenhouse, and Stage Sponsor, Action Rental.
The event will take place Sunday, April 10 at Stillwater Area High School from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m., and is designed to connect local businesses with local residents.
The Community Showcase will be free to the public, and includes live entertainment throughout the day, a kid’s activity area, and the sale of food from local restaurants.
The Chamber has over 110 businesses and organizations exhibiting and intends to make this an annual event.
“We decided to broaden our well established Home & Garden Show so that any and all area businesses and organizations would be eager to participate. Part of the work of the Chamber is to remind residents to keep it local and that is the theme of this new event. We are very pleased with the response we have gotten with over 100 area businesses participating” stated Kevin Sandstrom, Chamber Board Chair, and Community Showcase Event Committee Chair.
