State to celebrate 40 years of Made in Montana Program at tradeshow in Helena

The Montana Department of Commerce will celebrate the 40th anniversary of its Made in Montana Program at the Made in Montana Tradeshow for Food and Gifts on Friday and Saturday at the Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds.

The trade show began in 1984 as a program within the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development and the Montanan Department of Commerce. It includes gift and food items that are labeled authentic through the Grown in Montana, Native American Made in Montana and Taste our Place programs.
