Chamber of Commerce events and opportunities

Promotional events

The mission of our promotional events is to raise awareness of Estherville as a retail shopping and business destination by creating continuity in promotion throughout the year. The promotions committee meets monthly at the Chamber office.

Events are held in and around holidays, and customer appreciation events are held a few times a year.

Current events include:
  • Holiday Trick or Treat
  • Parade of Lights and Chocolate Walk
  • Winter Nights and Holiday Lights/TUBACHRISTMAS

Member networking

Business After 5
Every 2nd Tuesday of the month, a member business (or combination of members) volunteers to host Business After 5. They provide:
  • Venue
  • Food (from nibbles to buffet-style meals, it's up to you)
  • Drink (alcohol is not required, but is a common feature)
  • Invitations

Annual Business Meeting
Similar to a Business After 5, the annual business meeting is hosted by the Chamber in early October and has a brief program, including updates from the Chamber, EIDC, and select members.

Annual Banquet
In January, the Chamber hosts its annual awards banquet, auction, and raffle.

Major Estherville events

The Estherville Area Chamber of Commerce also runs a number of fun community events throughout the year. Our annual Sweet Corn Days is by far the biggest, and it sees thousands pack the downtown Library Square area for a parade, free sweet corn, street dance, car show and more.
