Chattanooga Chamber Hosts DIVERSIFY Marketplace Friday, June 29


Chattanooga, Tenn. (May 4, 2018) – Celebrate summer with local entrepreneurs, diverse cultures, regional artists and great food at the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce DIVERSIFY Marketplace Friday, June 29.

Held at the First Tennessee Pavilion across from Finley Stadium (1826 Reggie White Blvd.) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the DIVERSIFY Marketplace will be a family-oriented festival celebrating all things inclusive and diverse. Admission to the marketplace is free, and the public is invited to shop and support our regional businesses and nonprofits.

DIVERSIFY gives visitors the opportunity to purchase locally sourced items and unique gifts from vendors. Find everything from natural body products to jewelry, baked goods, clothing, landscaping/services and more from a wide variety of vendors. Music, food trucks and an all-around inclusive atmosphere will make DIVERSIFY a summer tradition for newcomers, and delight returning guests visiting their favorite vendors from previous years.

With hundreds of vendors and visitors expected, DIVERSIFY vendors will get the chance to rock their brands and shine on social media.

“This is the Chattanooga Chamber’s fifth year featuring the businesses and nonprofits that make our region unique,” said Maria Noel, Chamber Director of Diversity and Inclusion. “DIVERSIFY is the perfect place to sell merchandise, market products and services, network with business owners and young professionals and promote events to area residents and visitors.”
