A great event is taking shape that will give you the opportunity to reacquaint yourself with local businesses. The Cheboygan Area Chamber of Commerce (CACC) is hosting a Business Expo and Taste of the Straits at the Cheboygan Ice Rink/Pavilion on Thursday, May 2 from 3:00-8:00 p.m. The cost to attend is $5 per person. Vendors will range from retail businesses to banks to restaurants to service businesses. It will be a who’s who of Cheboygan. If you are a business that would like to participate, contact the Chamber office at (231) 627-7183 to reserve your spot.
This is a great way to see what the local businesses have to offer. The atmosphere of the event will be fun and festive. Ten restaurants will be on display to provide samples of their special cuisine while businesses will bring displays of their products so you can really check out the goods. Vendors are selling merchandise at the event, so if you see something you like, you will have the opportunity to buy it that day.
In years past, the Chamber has held a Home Show in the spring. Last year the Chamber altered the traditional show by creating the Business Expo and Taste of the Straits. Many of the same businesses that participated in the former Home Show were vendors at the revamped show. There was something for everyone and was a great way to see what Cheboygan area businesses have to offer.
A few new enhancements to this year’s event have been planned including a beer and wine bar, local chefs will provide cooking demonstrations, and participants will be able to sample a brew from local breweries in the “Northern Michigan Brewhaha” micro brew competition and the People’s Choice winner will be crowned victorious. As with any successful expo, 50/50 drawings, door prizes and giveaways will also be on hand.
