Esquimalt businesses are starring in an upcoming fair spearheaded by the Esquimalt Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber, which has 104 members from throughout Greater Victoria, last organized a commerce fair in 2004.
This time the event is designed to have a more festive air, complete with musicians and door prizes.
“The chamber has designed this day to increase awareness and visibility of Esquimalt as a viable business centre, and showcase all that our local business community has to offer,” Tania Dyck, chamber administrative assistant, wrote in a release.
Residents are invited to attend for free to peruse a number of Esquimalt industries, retail outlets and home-based businesses.
The event includes a hiring fair.
The business fair happens Sept. 24, from noon to 7 p.m. at the Archie Browning Sports Centre, 1151 Esquimalt Rd. For info, call 250-590-2125.
