What is a ribbon-cutting?
A ribbon-cutting is the ceremonial opening of a brand-new or newly-renovated/relocated business that has opened within the last six months with a photograph in the Chamber’s weekly e-newsletter. It can inaugurate an organization’s first day of business or it can take place weeks after the business’ soft opening. Ribbon-Cuttings will be held at the Host’s place of business. Members or Non-Members wishing to hold a Chamber Ribbon-Cutting must submit the online application below to the Chamber Office.

A significant moment
Because the ribbon cutting marks a very significant moment in the business’ history, this is also a great photo opportunity. The ceremony gives the business owner or manager a chance to say a few words to those gathered. Business owners have used this time to publicly thank their financial backers, their employees, their friends and family, and/or their business partners. They also take the opportunity to talk about what their business does.

- Market your event
- Submit a press release for our e-newsletter (members only)
