The Sycamore and DeKalb chambers of commerce will host a community expo from 4 to 7 p.m. March 30 at the Sycamore High School field house. About 130 local businesses and organizations are scheduled to participate.

“It is a joint effort between Sycamore and DeKalb chambers and our goal is simply to promote the businesses and nonprofits of our two communities,” Rose Treml, executive director of the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce, said in a news release.

“The majority of the 130-plus businesses that participate in this event are small businesses. So, it is a great opportunity for you to meet the owners one-on-one,” Treml said in the release. “We are all told and reminded to try to ‘Shop Local’ and to support Small Business Saturdays. This is the community’s chance to see what small local businesses we have in our county all in one place.”

The expo will include food samples from a variety of local restaurants, crafts and games for children, live demonstrations, 2017 car models, inflatable bounce houses and a live DJ. Attendees can enter to win raffle drawings and prizes.

“This is a family event,” Treml said in the release. “We hold it annually during Sycamore and DeKalb’s spring breaks in order to help beat the spring break boredom.“

The expo is free to the public. For information, visit www.sycamorechamber.com or call 815-895-3456.
