Join us on Tuesday, Jan 14, from 6-8pm at the Fern Ridge Service Center for a FREE, family-friendly event to celebrate the entrepreneurs of the Veneta-Fern Ridge area and the many people who support them!

Through the VenetaWorks program, we are working to develop a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Veneta-Fern Ridge area. In its first year of programming, 30 entrepreneurs took advantage of VenetaWorks services to help launch their businesses. Come see who they are by viewing the displays of their businesses, taste their food, and hear from our Popup Retail District vendors and economic development leaders from across the state. Plus, find out what’s in store in 2020 and beyond for entrepreneurs in Veneta.

The first 75 attendees get a free gift! RSVP today here:
