The 23rd Annual Brownwood Business Expo will feature over 70 local businesses in various lines of trade. The show will open at 10:00 AM on Thursday, September 7th at the Brownwood Coliseum and will feature well known, established businesses as well as some of the newest in the Brownwood area.

Admission at the door will be $2 and the complimentary passes are currently available for a limited time at the Brownwood Chamber of Commerce office – 600 E. Depot St.

“All visitors to the show will have the opportunity to win booth prizes from each of the exhibitors,” said Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce Membership Director Jennifer Barberie. “Those who participate in ‘Expo Bingo’ may enter to win the grand prize – $500 cash.”

For the 11th year, the Taste of Brownwood returns to offer the community the opportunity to sample favorite recipes from local restaurants, caterers and bakeries. From 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, expo visitors can sample tasty treats. Each visitor will receive 4 free Taste of Brownwood tickets with the $2 admission fee. Those who choose to enter with a complimentary pass will need to purchase Taste of Brownwood tickets for $1 each at the door the day of the show.

“Make plans to attend, visit with people you have known for years and get to know the new faces in town,” Barberie said. “Take time to learn about the products and services offered by each one of these local business owners.”

The Brownwood Chamber encourages local residents to “shop local” to support local businesses and the local economy.

The 2017 Brownwood Business Expo is sponsored by Songbird Lodge, Citizens National Bank and Central Texas Heart & Vascular.
