The Town of Leesburg strives to stay connected to our business community, and we’ve found one of the best ways to do that is through a variety of business events – celebratory, informative, problem-solving, or just networking.
Twice a year, the Leesburg Economic Development Commission (EDC) invites Leesburg Small Business owners and representatives together to discuss issues relating to the local business community. Through feedback and discussion from the business community, the EDC identifies focus areas for their work. These business forums serve as a way to report on work completed the selected focus areas and to collect feedback from business owners and the community.
The Town’s premiere business event is the annual Leesburg Business Awards, held in May each year. At this event, we recognize outstanding businesses for their contributions to the community and honor businesses that have been operating in Leesburg for 25 years or more.
The annual Youth Career Expo focuses on career opportunities for college and high school students who are just entering the workforce. 80 to 100 Leesburg employers participate each year, offering both full-time entry-level positions as well as part-time and summer job opportunities.

At your request, we can assist with press releases, arrange ribbon cutting ceremonies or anniversary celebrations, and post your event on this calendar.
