The Fennimore Area Chamber of Commerce sponsors events, special promotions, and networking opportunities throughout the year to encouraging community support and engagement.
Shop Local Promotions
The Fennimore Chamber always encourages community members and travelers to shop local, and at different times throughout the year, we reward them with prizes! Our Shop Local promotions take place four times throughout the year for a period of three weeks. Weekly prizes are awarded and all entries go into a drawing for a grand prize! All you have to do is shop local to win!
Shop Local For Your Chance to Win!
Shop small this fall for your chance to win! Make a purchase between September 20 and October 13, 2021 and you can enter to win Fennimore Bucks.
A Business Showcase is a social activity hosted by Fennimore Chamber member businesses as a way to introduce and highlight the goods and services they offer. Chamber members and their employees are encouraged to attend the Business Showcase for a few minutes or for the entire event.
The CARE Committee (Chamber Associates Recognizing Each Other) visits chamber member businesses who are celebrating a milestone anniversary or event, a new manager of the business or the offering of a new product.

Fennimore Bucks make a quick and easy gift while also supporting Fennimore Chamber member businesses. They may be spent the same as cash at participating businesses. Bucks make perfect gifts for those hard-to-buy for people, graduations, weddings or even a holiday bonus. Learn more about Fennimore Bucks and place an order here.
