The 2016 Neighborhood Summit Vendor Fair will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2016 from 8:00am-4:00pm.
The purpose of the Vendor Fair is to support and connect neighborhood-based organizations, businesses and non-profit organizations. The Vendor Fair offers participants the opportunity to network with local business, partner organizations or neighborhood services while learning about issues and opportunities in their community.
Center For Neighborhoods would like to extend an invitation to you and your company or non-profit organization to be a part of our Vendor Fair. You will have the opportunity to present your organization, services and products to hundreds of neighborhood leaders and local government leaders as well as other businesses and non-profit organizations from across Metro Louisville.
