Thurmont Prepares for Annual Business Expo - Viva Las Vegas!

Thurmont First, Inc. is excited to announce that the 6th Annual Thurmont Business Expo date has been set and preparations are underway. This year’s event will take place Friday, March 19th from 6 – 9 p.m., at Catoctin High School. This year’s expo has been extended to allow ample time to visit all the exhibitors.

In the fall members of the Thurmont Economic Development Committee voted on the theme Viva Las Vegas and exhibitors will be encouraged to decorate/dress within that theme. “In years past exhibitors have done an amazing job of embracing the theme and we anticipate this year will be no different,” stated Nancy Gregg Poss, Thurmont’s Main Street manager.

The Thurmont Business Expo steadily grows with each passing year. This year it is expected that approximately 100 spaces will be filled with businesses, schools, non-profits, churches and civic groups that have chosen Thurmont as their home. This event is free of charge to residents. We encourage all to attend and explore the many services and products that are available in Thurmont.
