Buy Local Business Expo

The Arts Council is proud to be participating in the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce “Buy Local Business Expo”.  The expo is Hall County’s premier business networking event, featuring dozens of businesses and non-profits. This event is FREE and open to the public, so why wouldn’t you come? It will be a great way to make new business connections, support Hall County, and meet new people!

The Expo is this Thursday, January 19, from 1-6pm at the Georgia Mountains Center.

As a local non-profit, The Arts Council not only provides quality entertainment to Hall County, but also advocates the arts in our schools,  helps preserve the integrity of historic downtown Gainesville, and gives back to the local community through the arts!

Stop by our booth for information on our upcoming events. We are jumping into 2012 head first! You have 11 opportunities to experience art at its best in the next 3 months. We have something for the art afficianado and the art neuvo. There is no greater feeling than the anticipation of witnessing something great about to happen when the lights in a theater dim.

We are honored to join efforts with  70 other esteemed Hall County businesses, hoping to make this expo the best one yet. We can reverse our economic trend with local investment. Commerce is growing in Hall County – we encourage you to help it grow faster. Our local purchases benefit county schools, parks and other vital areas. Spending elsewhere sends our assets elsewhere! Plain and simple!


“Absolutely, the future is bright,” says Kit Dunlap, Greater Hall County Chamber President.

A shout out to new businesses investing in Hall County!
