Industrial Craft Expo will showcase “Made in Bluff Country” products

Rushford, Minn. - “It’s time we show off the quality products and incredible innovation that comes out of this amazing Bluff Country region,” remarked Val Gaddis, Chairman of SE MN Historic Bluff Country, Inc.(“HBC”), a non-profit regional organization whose goal is to promote tourism and economic growth. “In my web business I have had an opportunity to see first-hand what this region is capable of, and, quite frankly, I’m impressed!”

That’s what prompted Val to ask why HBC couldn’t be showing off these great “Made-In-Bluff-Country” products at the Regional Visitor Center in Rushford for the public to see, including many visitors to the region for events and recreation.

So, on Saturday May 18, HBC is kicking off the effort, taking advantage of the influx of visitors to the region for the Houston Triathlon, the Whalan Standstill Parade, the La Crescent Rotary Apple Blossom Bicycle Tour, the Spring Valley Almanzo 100 and the Bluegrass Festival—all occurring that weekend. Manufacturers and home-based crafters from the region are invited to show off their products that day and beyond for the pleasure of the regional residents and Bluff Country visitors. For registration and information, contact Tricia at (507) 864-2992 or via email at hbc@bluffcountry.com. Deadline is May 8.
