Vendors are gearing up to pack the Bartlett Recreation Center on March 23 for the annual Bartlett Expo. Known more formally as the Bartlett Business, Home, Health & Garden Expo, the event introduces local residents to area businesses, passes out goodies and door prizes, and lets business owners network.
Last year’s Expo was on a day of torrential rains, but it still saw a gym full of 85 vendors and more than 900 visitors. This year, more than 1,000 people are expected to attend. The Expo will be open 9 a.m.-4 p.m. This year, the sponsors are the City of Bartlett, Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett, Herbi-Systems, Memphis Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens, First South Financial, KWAM AM 990, Journal West 10 Media (The Bartlett Express), Travel Leaders, City Auto, Rockin’ Robin’s DJs, On the Border, Chick-fil-A, LSI, First Tennessee, Port Alliance/H. Saga and e-PaymentAmerica.
Door prize winners will be announced on the main sound system at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
