The Yonkers Industrial Exposition and Pure Food Show was held at the State Armory on Maple and Waverly Streets in Yonkers, New York. The Yonkers Chamber of Commerce sponsored the event. It featured roughly 75 booths representing almost all of the manufacturers of Yonkers. The slogan for the expo “Industry Unites Us With the World” was selected from nearly 5,000 entries for a slogan contest that was held. Featured entertainment at the expo included musical performances and vaudeville acts direct from New York City.
