ATTENTION – Made in Montana Tradeshow Limits Event to Wholesale Buyers
The annual Made in Montana Tradeshow for Food & Gifts will be limited to wholesale buyers to protect against the possibility of spreading novel coronavirus or COVID-19.
Wholesale buyers will still have the opportunity to shop for authentic Montana products from nearly 150 Made in Montana vendors on Friday, March 13 from 9:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at the Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds. The show will not be open to the public on Saturday, March 14.
There are no known cases of COVID-19 in Montana. We recommend that wholesale buyers and sellers who plan to attend the tradeshow exercise proper hygiene and stay home if sick.
Tradeshow staff, in consultation with state and local health officials, have put in place additional safety measures to protect vendors and buyers who plan to attend. This includes basic verbal health screenings, additional hand-washing stations, and guidance on how to maintain clean booth spaces.
The annual Made in Montana Tradeshow is meant to connect wholesale buyers with Montana artists, craftspeople and entrepreneurs
