The Falls Chamber of Commerce advocates, promotes and supports business members and our communities.
Our communities share not only a Chamber of Commerce and a strong sense of community, but the beautiful St. Croix River – a National Park in our front yards. The area offers many opportunities for those visiting or choosing to call this unique place home. With the charm of two small cities we are proud of our dedication to the arts, tourism, small and large businesses and a high quality of life, which includes superior education, health care, recreation, and technology.
The Falls Chamber is a business membership organization that supports and advocates on behalf of our members. If you use good business practices, are involved in the community and care about your customers, we invite you to join our independent, nonprofit Chamber!
In addition to our fundraising events; Falls Sampler (May 6, 2016), Ribfest (August 27, 2016) and the Brat Feed (Sept. 25, 2016), the Falls Chamber supports these community festivals:
