The Greenwich Chamber of Commerce annual Business & Culinary Showcase on Thursday night was their largest business event of the year.
With 75 exhibitors, Eastern Greenwich Civic Center was jam-packed as hundreds mingled, exchanged business cards, chatted with local business owners and visited friends and neighbors.
Greenwich Chamber executive director Marcia O’Kane joined emcee Kendra Farn, veteran News reporter and anchor, a Greenwich resident.
“Please take the time to visit every booth, and introduce yourself to the wonderful exhibitors here tonight,” Kendra urged the crowd of over 400.

Many delicious and well presented food and beverage tastings were enjoyed. Attendees brought robust appetites with them and tasted their way through the aisles of savory and sweet offerings. Another highlight were many raffle prizes announced throughout the evening.
Each year this show seems to gather a large, enthusiastic crowd interested in supporting local Greenwich businesses. “ I’m proud of this impressive turnout, our businesses are strong and growing,” Marcia expressed.
