The City of Norwich’s Diversity Committee
was created with a specific Mission: To increase the number of diverse applicants by engaging underrepresented groups to seek city employment. The committee is made up of city employees and community members from many different backgrounds, viewpoints, and experiences.


Princess House logoPrincess House’s primary purpose was to provide an opportunity for women to become financially and personally independent at a time when women had few career options. The road to independence was paved by the company’s unique offering of beautiful handblown, cut-glass crystal ware and collectibles and the flexibility it offered consultants through its direct selling party plan model. Local consultant Marvie Cagle will be representing the company as an Independent Distributor at Juneteenth.



In support of the greater Norwich small business community, we’ve lowered our vendor prices! Food / Material / Goods vendors will now only pay $20 for a space.
