Going strong for over two decades, the Steilacoom Chamber of Commerce supports our town's vibrant business community and serves the community at large.
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.
At this point, you may be wondering where you have seen the Chamber in action.
Grand Old 4th of July Celebration
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, host a tree lighting event in December, and present congressional candidate forums for our area in the fall.
The Business Directory
For your convenience, we also print and distribute a directory of chamber businesses and we deliver it free of charge to every home (and to some businesses). The business directory not only supports our members, but it also makes locating quality businesses easy for everybody. A digital version [link to Business Directory] of that directory is also available right here on our website for the convenience of our community and the businesses we support.
