Sparwood welcomes all to trade fair

Residents of Sparwood and the Elk Valley are welcomed to attend the second semi-annual trade fair this weekend.

Following the very successful first annual Spring has Sprung Trade Fair, residents of Sparwood and the Elk Valley are welcomed to attend the second semi-annual trade fair being held in Sparwood this weekend.

The trade fair was created to give small business owners an avenue to get out into the public and showcase their products and services. Mandy Merrill and Megan Lebsack, event facilitators, say this type of event is very exciting and much needed in the Elk Valley.

“Here in the Elk Valley there are so many people who have small, home based businesses and nowhere to really promote them, us included. We know that social media is bombarded with business promotions, and in most cases, it is people from out of town getting the business because they have better or more noticeable promotions. So many people have been giving us really positive feedback about this event, and there is such a variety of vendors attending and items being showcased,” says Merrill.

The event will showcase over 20 vendors selling everything from Avon to candy bouquets and much more. “We would really like to welcome everyone to come check it out, get a head start on Christmas shopping and support local small business owners,” says Merrill.

The event will be held on Saturday, October 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sparwood Recreation Center. Admission is $2.
