The Martensville Business Expo took place at the Martensville Athletic Pavilion on March 242th and 25th, bringing with it a wide variety of vendors, entertainment, information and more. The event was hosted in partnership between the City of Martensville and the Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce.


This year, there was a new addition made to the Expo, with a Friday evening Job Fair, providing local youth with more information about job opportunities within Martensville and the surrounding area.


“The job fair was amazing! Young adults were given an opportunity to meet with businesses in our community and talk to them about career choices and job opportunities. Young entrepreneurs gave presentations on their journey and suggestions on how to become a business and things to be aware of and Carter’s Counselling provided guidance on career choices and job interviews,” Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Debbie Brown said.


Presentations that took place on Friday, March 24th included guest speakers from Great Plains College, Martensville Youth Connection, Cones Ice Cream, Direct Fencing Supply, Element Yard Care, Martensville Community Recreation Project and the Prairie Spirit Schools Foundation.

On Saturday, the day began with a by-donation pancake breakfast served up by the Martensville & District Kinsmen Club and continued with those attending having another chance to learn more about local businesses with over 50 vendors on site. There was also an opportunity to sample some tasty local food options with the Taste of Martensville.


Entertainment was available throughout the day with performances by Kris Klyne, Venture Heights School, Warman Ultimate Cheer and Hawk’s Nest Studio, as well as Warren the Balloon Guy.


“The Expo is evolving, as it now introduces our region to a variety of businesses such as restaurants, entertainment and businesses providing products and services. Thank you to the committee members, the businesses and a special thank you to the sponsors that made this event a success,” Brown added.
