Northbridge MA: The Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce announces its 21st annual Home & Community Expo on Saturday, March 16th from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Northbridge High School Field House, 427 Linwood Ave., Northbridge.

The Home & Community Expo is the largest and most well attended event hosted by the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce, with Presenting Sponsor, UniBank. Each year it hosts more than 100 exhibitors and over 2,500 attendees from the community. The exposure and promotion for businesses is unmatched at an event of this stature. Exhibitors range from lifestyle, health and wellness, financial, technology and education to name a few. Interactive booths include face painting, petting zoo, and live entertainment that provide fun for the whole family! This year, join in on the fun with a St. Patrick’s Day theme! Visit our Pot O’ Gold sponsor booths and ask the secret question for a chance to win some great local prizes. Look for the leprechaun on the expo floor that day and snag a picture, and perhaps a special prize! “This is an exciting event showcasing our local businesses, offering a special opportunity to local small and sole proprietorships, as well as non-profits” says Jeannie Hebert, Chamber President and CEO.

In addition to exhibitors, the day features ‘Chowderfest’—a tasting competition among several local restaurants serving their best chowder, competing for ‘Best Judged’ and ‘People’s Choice’ awards, sponsored by Milford Federal Bank. Local restaurants will compete for bragging rights in the Valley. Come sample some delicious chowder and cast your vote!

This event is made possible by generous community sponsors including UniBank, Gaudette Insurance, Savers Bank, Milford Federal Bank and Osterman Propane. Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are still available. This event is open to all. Admission is free with a non-perishable food item or 2.00 donation which will be made to “Peace of Bread” local food bank. Printable admission tickets are found online at and available at many vendors places of business.
