“This is a community event dedicated to connecting local families with the first-rate programs and resources available in the Barrington region,” said BACC President/CEO Suzanne Corr. “The Expo is a family affair – with hands-on activities for all ages, business and community booths, local entertainment, food and refreshments that acquaint you with the resources accessible in our own communities.”

The BizEd Community Expo will include nearly 100 booths representing local business, community groups and nonprofits, and educational resources. A section of the expo is dedicated to a hands-on S.T.E.M. Fair (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). In addition, there will be robotics demos, food and refreshments, local youth entertainment and more. New this year, the event will include selected Lemonade Stands developed by business teams comprised of students from Barrington’s elementary schools who are participating in a new entrepreneurial training program.

Attendance to the Community Expo is free to the public and parking is free in the BHS lots. Throughout the day attendees can win free raffle prizes and enter to win a $500 Barrington Area Shopping Spree.
