The Cokato Chamber is once again hosting the bi-annual Dassel-Cokato Business Expo, set for Saturday, April 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dassel-Cokato High School west gym.

This is the expo’s sixth year, and Dan Stonelake, president of the Cokato Chamber, is hoping this year will be just as successful as in the past.

At the last expo, in 2006, there were 58 booths, which drew more than 700 people.

Local businesses and organizations use the expo as a way to promote themselves and to inform the community of their benefits, services, and products.

So far, there are 20 vendors who signed up as of press time including Tastefully Simple, MEADA, Rotary, Herald Journal Publishing, and many more.

This family-friendly event is free and will have something for everybody.

Visitors can expect vendor giveaways and other treats. Stonelake Title, for example, will be giving away two potted plants.

The deadline for vendor sign-up is Friday, April 4. To reserve a 10- by-10 space, call Stonelake at (320) 286-3211.
