Ribbon Cutting Request

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.

Keep in mind that we are your support, this is your event. You can make it as simple or as big as you want!

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.

Tips for a successful ribbon cutting:

  • Schedule and plan in advance
  • Invite customers, clients, friends, family, and your local municipality
  • Market your event
  • Submit a press release for our e-newsletter (members only)
  • Provide food and beverages (we suggest it!)
  • Have an announcement or speech to educate your guests
  • Prepare for bad weather
