The Ferndale Chamber of Commerce (FCOC) and Silver Reef Hotel Casino Spa have come together to bring the community the first Cross-Border Expo, to be held Thursday, June 6 from 2 to 7 p.m. at the Silver Reef Casino Event Center.

The event will showcase more than 60 exhibitors and feature two educational sessions aimed at cross-border business and real estate. “It is our hope to attract Canadian businesses looking to expand into our market, which would provide quality jobs to local residents and an economic boost to our local area,” said FCOC executive director, Guy Occhiogrosso.

The Cross-Border Expo will also be the focal point for a cross-border weekend getaway, which will cater to the new 24- and 48-hour Canadian customs exemptions for returning Canadian residents.

Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism will provide Canadian tourists and investors with a variety of suggested visits in addition to the Cross-Border Expo and the program will also attract attendees from both Whatcom and Skagit Counties.
