Why do we exist?
Our mission is to support and promote business in the greater Steilacoom area and to enhance our town's quality of life by participating in civic projects and events. We also proudly serve as the Town of Steilacoom’s official tourism committee.
Advancing the business viewpoint to the public and other interested parties, while fostering, developing, and encouraging business best practices with our members rounds out our list of core activities.

Grand Old 4th of July Celebration (Cancelled 2020 due to Covid-19)
The event we're most well known for takes place on the 4th of July. Each year, the Steilacoom Chamber of Commerce presents the Grand Old 4th of July Celebration in conjunction with the Town of Steilacoom. Among other things, the event involves a:
BBQ beef sandwich booth
Every year, this event ends with a bang — literally — as the Fireworks Presentation Committee treats us all to a spectacular fireworks extravaganza over Puget Sound.
Our mission to enhance Steilacoom's quality of life doesn't stop in July. We also put on a community-wide garage sale in August and host a tree lighting event in December at Town Hall.
