It's NoblePalooza, an Expo to Thrive!
An expo coming to the Community Learning Center in Kendallville this March hopes to leave people feeling more in the know about what is happening across Noble County. Applications are now being sought from exhibitors and vendors who would like to participate in “NoblePalooza, an Expo to Thrive”. Participation is free.
NoblePalooza Saturday, March 12, 2022 10 AM - 1 PM
Most expos seek to provide a way for individuals and organizations to promote and grow their businesses and generate income, but NoblePalooza is an event driven by higher ambitions (though the marketplace will definitely provide an opportunity for sales). The brainchild of local leaders of Thrive Noble County, NoblePalooza aims to bring people together to gain insight in how to better be a thriving, engaged member of the community.
The expo, sponsored by Thrive Noble County, will be centered around the Five Pillars of Thrive, which are: community investment, entrepreneurial growth, youth engagement, leadership development, and cultural enhancement. NoblePalooza will help raise awareness of the pillars so that all community members might be more intentional in making choices that support the five pillars in the future.
Other local leaders collaborating through Thrive to bring NoblePalooza together include Melissa Carpenter, Freedom Academy; Brad Graden, Community Foundation of Noble County; Sandy Petrie, Noble County Public Library; Gayle Wisner, Conscious Community; Julia Tipton, Community Learning Center; and Ryan Ferguson, Cole Center YMCA.
Exhibitor and vendor applications will be accepted through February 16 and may be downloaded at www.noblepalooza.com.
Expo attendance is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to pre-register via the website to aid in planning efforts. For more information, contact any of the planners noted above, or the Noble County EDC at (260) 636-3800 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
